It is so strange how we love to ignore the reality of death. We relinquish in ignoring this anti-reality. And we call it an event, an unpleasant one though. To be an event it has to be eventful, doesn't it? Death presumes the end of ti, whatever that "it" is. It is the antonym of existence.
A dear friend of mine has just passed away (Last night). Laila Ibnlfassi, ceased to exist. Amazing I am already using the simple past!!!
Your death, Leila, is a loss. As is always the case, the dear ones die unexpectedly. I was looking forward to meeting you this end of year somewhere in Rabat. It looks like that this is yet another to be missed meeting. You lived as a stranger and you died as a stranger.
May you rest in peace.
