A Good Death

Fifty years from now, after a long and fruitful writing career, with many bestsellers and many awards, I lie on my deathbed surrounded by family and friends.

I look to my son and reach out my hand to him. He grasps my hand in his.

With my last breath I say, “Remember me to Gallifrey…”

My son looks down at me and says, “Father, it’s pronounced Galli-FREY.”

I smile and pass across the Rainbow Bridge, my work complete.
