    I am not convinced that I am alive, as part of me is
    decaying as seconds go by, yet I recognize life in me.
    So, am I alive yet disappearing or dead tissue given
    vanishing life? Am I living backwards, going backwards
    into the source of life, having been born from a spot
    in which my life was a sparkle?

    As I walk and go about my business, I feel the potential
    of not being here anymore, occupying the same space
    as the one I do --the one who talks, breathes, moves,
    thinks. It is confusing, as the potential of being and
    not being take the same presence, the one which others
    and myself conceive as that entity who is me.

    What am I?

    Watch the movie, Jacob's Ladder, and tell me if you see anything familiar.

    And it's a relatively short walk in the grand scheme of things.

    Leaves that fall spring back again

    But what happens in between

    Look! See!

    My mind a bewildering army of branches
    covered in leaves

    Wind and my leaves rustle
    Water and my leaves drink
    Sunlight and my leaves flourish
    Death and my leaves feast

    My mind of leaves
    Surely something to behold

    When cold strikes they fall
    They rot and they dissolve
    They feed shamed landscape
    They leave me bare

    Wind hollow
    Water frozen
    Sunlight dim
    Death without meaning

    Where is my mind then?

    Deep sleep - almost dead - unaware - uninterested

    Last thought?

    Leaves that fall spring back again.

    So is that what I am?
    A tree for ideas to grow on?

    Ideas that fall spring back again.

    Yes.

    I am slowly slipping into a vacuum of stardust, spinning
    bubbles flank me --silver shower!
