22. Just like everybody else
Just like you, just like me, just like everybody else. “Cosmo, I just want you to know no matter what you do, you're gonna die, just
like everybody else.” “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth.” “All men are as
grass,” and that – right there – “That's the blank,
unholy surprise of it.” Like beasts - like the grass - like the seasons and the fields and the end of each day, we end. Not miracles like the stars. Not miracles like universes or like the deep sea. We are the miracles of a moment.
