There comes a point in every life of self-destruction when one concludes that his or her suicide is taking too long. I have never feared death. I think of the words of Herman Melville who said, “When I contemplate the vastness of the sea, I am gripped with the terror of the half-lived life.” At this juncture in my own existence, when fully prepared to submit to death, I elected to surrender to life. I yearn for the day when I no longer debate that decision.
