an aside

Due to the amount of time I spend on reddit, I find that there are few things that phase me or can sway my emotions (sometimes I end up on the weird part of the internet). But this essay written by Paul Kalanithi, a chief resident in neurological surgery at Standford, made my eyes well and my breath catch. I think we all struggle with mortality and our unidentified expiration date. I think it’s also inevitable that we want to fight the march of time, regardless of how fruitless our efforts can be.
Kalanithi’s words are beautiful and haunting, and I wish him all the best for the future.
