The proximity of death

Q: Do you struggle with the proximity of death, about how little time we all have?

A: I'm fascinated by the brevity of life and how people use their time, because we all know that the axe will fall. It's inevitable - as you and I sitting here now - that the Tuesday will arrive when you, Kirsty, are not here. Nobody can reach you by telephone. Nobody can write to you and nobody can email you. You just won't be here. So, we all know this fact. With that in the forefront of our mind - in everything we do - I find it fascinating how people spend their time.
