There Could Be Worse Epitaphs

Here’s something I would consider for mine, lo those many moons from now:

I have had my invitation to this world’s festival, and thus my life has been blessed.
My eyes have seen and my ears have heard.
It was my part at this feast to play upon my instrument, and I have done all I could.
Now, I ask, has the time come at last when I may go in and see thy face and offer thee my silent salutations?
— Rabindranath Tagore, from Gitanjali

And of course, Pink Floyd’s “Great Gig in the Sky” would HAVE to be playing at the recessional.
