I obsessively try to capture life because I know it's fleeting and then it's gone.
I feel each moment so fully and I'm aware of its impermanence so acutely that it hurts even during the richest experiences of my life.
I'm aware of this always and it both helps and hinders me.
It helps me because my desire to live fully and deeply is ever-present. And it hurts me because I am never not thinking about death and feeling ready for it to come at any time.
How anyone can ever be casual about the passing of time and the inevitability of their life ending, I'll never understand.
I hate the former and welcome the latter, and maybe to an extreme, but I'd rather feeling everything - the good and the bad - than to have it all pass me by without having dived right in.
