People push back when I express my (now) natural state of non-attachment. "I bet you miss seeing your grandchildren?" a friend may say. "No," I say, "but it was wonderful being with them."
We rarely talk about what frightens us, but we all have dark places we don’t want to visit. The thought that harm would come to our children shakes us to the core and keeps us awake at night. It’s what made Sophie’s Choice, having to decide which of her two children will live and which will die is gut-wrenching. Aging and death are dark places we’d rather not visit.
