My sister is selling the house we live in. It’s a good idea.
Her intent is to rent a two bedroom apartment for us, despite my limited ability to help with anything financial.
If that happens, my sister will no doubt have to deal with me and my remains after I die, which, I suspect, will be quite soon, considering I’ve come so close recently and have outlived expectations anyway.
Every night, I take my ativan and my ambien with a glass of wine. (usually, I’ve had more than a few glasses before I get to my meds) hoping that I don’t wake up the next morning. So far, no luck.
But now, now that the house is going on the market and she will be making a fresh start, I’m thinking I might amp things up toward the end of the selling process, so that if I die in my sleep in this house, she won’t be left living with the ghosts. She’d already be committed to a new life and could start it fresh and without me being the burden that I have been.
Daily Overview is a new project that shares one satellite photo from Digital Globes a day in an attempt to change the way we see our planet Earth. The project was inspired by the Overview Effect experience, which is a cognitive shift of perspective and worldview experienced by the astronauts when they get to see the planet Earth from space for the first time.
