In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Finite Creatures.”
At what age did you realize you were not immortal? How did you react to that discovery?
I find this DP topic amusing. lol. For a start, I never thought of me being immortal (although of course it is a childish wish analogous to having a flying power or teleporting skill). Well, that is from the time that my brain started to realize and rationalize things. A thinking mind that is. There were a lot of factors that I could say I know that life ends. Death of a beloved pet, death of a character even in cartoons. And even when young, the death of some relatives and attending of funerals, are as natural as life itself. So I guess, ever since, I know that death is a universal truth, a dogma and everyone has to go through it.
