Awesome read, Troy. I love horror. I love the safe approach to being scared by the horror genre. But as I age, I also think about death increasingly more often. But that's ok, for all those reasons. It's coming. It'll eventually come. I don't want to live in ignorance of that fact.

The secret ingredient in clouds! 🤩

Great line and words about SFIT. The idea of you cherishing every coconut made me smile.

So... I've never read any Gene Wolfe. On my list though. Need to go seek out that post you mention ...

I can see Gene Wolfe now, yelling "kiss my dead ass" from the beyond...

Love this line: "...Horror must be the original genre because before we had hearths, lava lamps or recessed lighting, we all sat around campfires with our backs to the dark." I've done a lot of primitive camping in the wilderness and can attest to the very real fear of having your personage lit up for all to see and your back to the vast darkness behind you.
