Unlike the weather, no one talks about Death, but everyone does something about it. They die. And I wrote about it.

 

In a lively collection of fables, lyrics, memoir, humor, eulogies,  epithets, epigrams, aphorisms, riddles, rhyme, and reason,

Final Thoughts presents this one mortal’s quest to laugh at death.
