i have always been comfortable with my mortality, so no, it doesn't make me think more on that. it does however, make me more aware of the passage of time. heck just seeing an actor in some role, who i had not seen or even heard of since i was a kid, and seeing how very old they look, sometimes shocks me. i have a very bad memory, which tends to make me an "out of sight, out of mind" kind of person. (me, not my body) does not age, so i forget we all age physically sometimes,(lol, re reading this before posting i realized it looks like i am saying we all age physically sometimes, but what i mean is i forget that sometimes :)) so when i see someone i thought young and handsome, or beautiful, and they have not aged well...it is kind of a shock.
