“I was just thoughts, just air. There was nothingness all around me. Was this what it was like to be dead? When you died, did you still sense everything going on around you, only it was happening so far away that you didn’t care about it? You were floating through space and time, and nothing that happened to you mattered because nothing really could happen to you because you didn’t exist?”
― Melissa Kantor, Maybe One Day
Inspite of my hectic schedule, a friend still recommended this book to me … I find this novel a powerful instrument which reminds us of our bestfriends, either living or deceased, and how we chose to sacrifice our own happiness for the other’s sake.
Now back to the quote, the author and I have the same idea regarding death. If you die, you will feel loneliness, either because everyone mourns for you or not. You will feel emptiness because you can’t anymore feel what humans have to feel — the emotions and the senses. It feels like you were just air, something who gets to pass to someone’s life and then, in a snap of finger, you were already gone — a feeling like you never existed at all.
