Music is Suil a ruin by Ceili Moss.
Be sure and pick up a copy of the novel Padre, beginning 01 November, 2011.
Death stands beside me. It stands near me like an old prison warden I’ve known for years, but we’ve never quite become friends and at times I even hated this warden. Now, though, there is no hate left in me for my warden. Death is no longer simply a frightening and inevitable destination, but I can see that it is the composite of all the moments that came before this moment and it completes the necessary whole of my life.
