Today was a sunny,windy and chilly day, all in one, so I left home bundled up.
At a traffic stop,as an ambulance was passing by,I looked on my sides. I saw there was a large entrance to this graveyard on my left, nothing new about this, it was always there. But what I saw at the main entrance was thought provoking. A big board at the entrance saying:
VISITORS ARE WELCOME
and there was a second board standing on ground with a direction arrow saying:
The immediate thought came to my mind was a dialogue from movie "Gladiator":
"I will see you again." " But not yet" "Not yet"
"Visitor are welcome", I thought about this whole day and while driving back home !
The usual question we ask is like this:
Do you think,death is an ending or beginning of something like life?
The answer may depend on how you define death.
But the real question is this:
Once we accept this "visitors are welcome"invitation, are we still visitors?
As we know, almost everyone ends up staying there for good!
