Moment Mori

Today I envision myself being killed in a traffic accident during rush hour. My only concerns were that my wife knew that I loved her, and that I had not spent enough time enjoying the rich beauty in nature.

Literally two minutes later I found belly button lint in my actual belly button! It somehow seems profound in a lighthearted way. Is this the first time the navel gazing actually generated a result?
