Castles

Arundel CastleA conversation overheard between a young boy and his father:

“Dad, what happens to you when you die?”

“That depends. Sometimes they put you in a box and bury you. Sometimes they burn you. Some people leave their dead out to be eaten by birds.”

“No, not your body, what happens to you?”

“Well, that depends on what you do when you’re alive. If you build yourself somewhere to go to when your body dies then you’ll go there. If you don’t, I guess then you just disappear.”

“Disappear?”

“Eaten by the world. Reabsorbed into nothingness, like you never existed.”

“I’m going to build myself a castle for when I die.”
