I remembered recently a feature on an episode of Balderdash & Piffle about S.F.A. - Fanny Adams was a child murdered in a field in Victorian England, big scandal, murderer discovered by his diary entry of that day "killed a young girl - it was fine and hot." - I kid you not. Anyway, thinking about her murder from well into the future, when everyone else on earth at that time is also dead, it made it clear to me that at the end of the day, despite the tragedy, she got to spend less time on earth. And this is what it's all about. Existentialism. The old cliches of live your life, cherish every moment blah blah, came back to me with force, pushing away my negativities about my role in society. There's merit in there somewhere.
