Life of Cat (5772 Chayei Sarah)

In Genesis on November 15, 2011 at 10:25 am

Burial of Sarah (engraving by Gustave Doré from the 1865 La Sainte Bible)

Through the eyes of a cat
Life, ever new, ever changing
Gullies become plains and plains become gullies
Before the bedclothes are cleared yet again,
and the adventure begins anew.

1 Kings 1:1-31
Genesis 23:1-25:18

Why does the life of Sarah begin with the death of Sarah?

How is one’s life measured?

How is one’s life remembered?

Does life begin or end at birth and death?

When is life?  Future?  Past?  Present?
