Life Is So Short

In 2016 we are being reminded so very often that life is so so short. David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Victoria Wood and Prince are well known figures who passed away this year – and it is only April. Of course, many more people have passed away in this year to date, but only the celebrities make the headlines when they die. Fame, money, possessions and status fade into insignificance when death comes, and it often raises more questions than it answers. The brief candle is so quickly snuffed out. Surely there is more to life than this?
