Every drop of dew before it fades must think itself immortal.

  1. this is a tough one to crack, something like "live every day as if it was your last" kind of thing :) ?

  2. I'm thinking the same thing. Everyone bimbles along through life, never really sure if the double -decker bus of fate is going to crash the traffic lights of destiny at life's next busy junction, and send us to the emergency room of doom.
    Essentially, ignorance is bliss.

  3. Beautiful imagery! I love this aphorism, Marty. We are all dew drops and one day, we will all fade into the mist of time, so thinking of ourselves as immortal is how we maintain our individuality.

  4. a concept that could be bleak or dark is transformed with your imagery into something translucent, delicate, precious, quietly beautiful

  5. Maybe it's better not to dwell on dying!

  6. A rooster one day; feather duster the next!

    I liked this one too NP. Quite Buddhist in its romantic imagery & its inference of `unexpected impermanence.'
    Cheers,

  8. Very beautiful. Time is precious. Although perhaps the dew drop is onto something.... It fades only to return one day as another drop on a different blade of grass or to join a million other "immortals" thundering out of a stormy sky.

  9. Or maybe it just steps up and lives its existence in all its glory, before evaporating away into a foggy mist.

  10. Or rather: "Every drop of dew before it fades must assume itself immortal". And not a bad assumption - assuming that the drop of dew wants to keep its/his/her sanity.

  11. Every drop of dew is in reality immortal. What ever it may think of itself.
