Memento Mori

Contemplating the (natural) end of the planet is a recurring topic, especially for our son. It may have been triggered a few months ago by watching the Dr Who episode set 5,000,000,000 years into the future.

We try and explain the unimaginably vast, near-infinite amount of time this is, but what he worries about is missing the planet and everyone on it.. And whether his toys will survive the sun blasts…

Underlying all this is a little boy’s attempts to come to terms with mortality.
