Quote for the Day: Dancing and Endings

“In the Ramtop village where they dance the real Morris dance, for example, they believe that no one is finally dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away — until the clock he wound up winds down, until the wine she made has finished its ferment, until the crop they planted is harvested. The span of someone’s life, they say, is only the core of their actual existence. (…) And in the cold afternoon, as the light drains from the sky, among the frosty leaves and in the damp air, they dance the other Morris. Because of the balance of things. You’ve got to dance both, they say. Otherwise you can’t dance either.” ~ Terry Pratchett

There is nothing I can say to add to the beauty that is this idea.
