And now for a completely silly thought…

When I was a kid, I believed (and still do to some extent, though now I just admit that I know nothing about the afterlife but am looking forward to finding out what it’s like) that when we die we all go to heaven and it’s simultaneously the perfect place for every individual.  So like my mom could be in a beautiful garden with my Daddy and I and yet somehow simultaneously Daddy could be with us in a perfectly green, energy-efficient house that he designed.  Or whatever.  But I just remembered that belief and thought, “hmm, I wonder if when I die I’ll go to Valinor.”

Nerd.
