I think about death fairly often. Not as an obsession or because of depression. I'm thought of as a fairly happy guy despite certain circumstances. It's not really that surprising that I think of it as much as I do since I've come close to it so many times already. Of course I'm fearful of how it'll come, but I know it has to happen some time. Meh.


My ideal death scene for myself would be thusly:

Inside of a small studio,
I'd be sitting at my drawing table. One that I've built myself. Redwood, I think.
There's a radio on low, tuned-in to a local jazz station.
My arms crossed, creating a pillow for my head to rest. It would be as if I were asleep, and dreaming of whatever wonderful story that would come across my mind.
I would want to be wearing my favorite plaid long sleeve shirt, with the arms rolled up. Along with a pair of blue jeans.
There's a smoldering tobacco pipe on the side of the table, the embers slowly losing their energy.
And resting underneath me, is my last piece of art.
A comic page maybe.
One last loving kiss to the world.

And that's my ideal death scene for myself.
I apologize if it may seem morbid of me to let my mind think about such things, but it's something that my mind wanders to every-so-often.
If I can achieve this scene, then it means I die happy.
There's a video to go along with this:

birth seems very shocking and confusing when you arrive.
first person you know of is your mum, you have no Idea where you just came from and your just laying a this [link]

and go out in a calm and comfortable situation.

When I was younger, my ideal death scene was eating a never ending supply og cheese burgers. Gluttonous, sure, but I would love to eat some tasty foods before I go.

I think most of us want to go out that way. One last project on the table (hopefully completed). It's the cartoonist's death.

Not violent, not lonesome. We love what we do and, in the end, what better way to exit than doing what we love? = )

I wanna go out in blaze of glory. Like saving a bus of kids from a robot bear attack or something. Yeah, that'd be a ballin' way to go!

Though death is sort of taboo in this culture, I think it's important to talk about it. No need to apologize at all! I think it's awesome you've got an ideal death. Live happy, die happy =3
