'I always was morbid but when Isabel was born The morbidity hit different levels I became aware that death is always threatening I dreamt of death' That’s a line in the book about morbidity, the morbidity of a parent. It’s a universal feeling. While Isabel was a young child, I transformed myself every day. Everyday I died a little. John Updike questioned why we should be scared of death; “Each day, we wake slightly altered, and the person we were yesterday is dead. So why, one could say, be afraid of death, when death comes all the time” It’s a nice sentiment and as I get older, the less I’m afraid of death. The closer I get to it, the less it concerns me. But then that’s because it’s nothing to do with me.
