I would like to die after a happy life. Not necessarily long- just happy. For instance, if I died during an aikido class, I wouldhave died at one of the high points of my day- nothing can tarnish the joy I have when I'm doing aikido. On the other hand, I might as well live until I finish writing a story I'm writing, ecause otherwise I could never rest in peace.
Death is inevitable (for most)
so I might as well go quickly, and not drag the process out. Dying over a lifetime would be a pain. (pun not intended)
