In the mind of the man of The Ocean as he goes down for the last time:

I reached the peace and acceptance of flying into a dream.

Omnipotence.

And the trees are involved in something, too.

The Thread (7)

 Author's voice in grey. 

  1. I suspect @bear will have something to share with us about this man’s chosen death.

  2. I’d like to think that in the last moment, the man’s mind is a perfect blank.

    But perhaps this is as close as we can come.

  3. In the last, yes. This is as he goes down, so a few before the last.

    Last thoughts.

  4. Right. Not a bad death.

  5. A moment of clarity and purpose. Like parking a car.

  6. Or crossing a swamp.

  7. Or parking a life.

    A penultimate moment perhaps to be known as operi.

    / oʊ – pɛr – iː /

    Sounds like potpourri. Maybe is like potpourri — the blend of life that flashes in the mind before the eyes go blank, then silent.
