Zen Moments

I'm listening to the song, "Who Wants To Live Forever" by Queen right this very moment. It was the theme song of the original Highlander movie (alas, the only good Highlander movie, the sequels are all crap.)

It's a very touching song because it was the theme when Duncan MacLeod was burying his dead and decrepit wife while he himself has
remained young, ageless and immortal. The lyrics go

"Who wants to live forever?
Who dares to live forever?
When love must die?"

It's a very sad song but I like it. Perhaps because I know that none of us shall live forever.
