I have a quote stuck in my head from comedian Julia Sweeney’s autobiographical show God Said Ha!

“What if Heaven is just an instant?”

Whether it is, or it isn’t, I am in no hurry to discover, but this book is a sweet, tender story of what happens after. And for those who haven’t experienced this kind of profound and tragic loss, what happens instead.

The cosmic importance of everyday life: Live life consciously. Be kind to everyone.

That message is transcendent. It has no religion, no tribe, no owners. It is universal.
