Six Feet Under: Pay Attention

Everybody dies.  Until you really face the truth of your own mortality, you can't really start to live. ~ Alan Ball, Creator, Six Feet Under.

As Claire embarks on a journey and says her goodbyes, she takes a photo of her family. Nate whispers over her shoulder: "You can't take a picture of this, it's already gone."

If you haven't watched the series from season 1, episode 1, stop NOW, go to Netflix and start watching.  Forewarned about the power of the finale. I watched it alone, so as not to scare my roommate. Through my sobbing and Sia, all I could think was "It goes SO fast."  Be present, and pay attention.
