Death (hopefully no time soon, yet inevitable)

A friend of mine just posted about a fear of dying and having nobody show up at the funeral. I've felt that way before. Death in general is a pretty scary thing. Interestingly enough, at about the same time, supergee posted a link to Robert Anton Wilson's Blog, which has on it the following conversation:

Wavy Gravy once asked a Zen Roshi, "What happens after death?"

The Roshi replied, "I don't know."

Wavy protested, "But you're a Zen Master!"

"Yes," the Roshi admitted, "but I'm not a dead Zen Master."

the story's not the same without the illustration

This is about the same as my attitude about what happens after death: I don't know.

But I hope, in some small pocket of the world, that what happens after my death includes that people get together to celebrate and share memories of my life.
