it was amazing
Read on May 19, 2012

I'm fascinated by death. I want to know what it is, and how to conceptualize it.

Alice sounds like the most amazing woman who ever lived. Everything I read about her made me love her: her remarkable beauty, her disdain for smoking, her contempt for religion, her belief that success is not proportional to wealth (the Alice is tax is my kind of tax), her amazing sense of humour, her ability to write like I can only dream of doing, and her love for every single person who needed to be loved.

I was curious to see what her husband would have to say regarding the loss of his wife. As I suspected, there isn't very much too say. She was a great human being, the kind that we need more of, and we should all be so lucky as to touch as many people as she did.
