I Am Death

Human beings make life so interesting. Do you know, that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to invent boredom. 

Death, Hogfather

I thought that quote was from Death in Hogfather. He needs a good curry.

thanks for catching that.
Initially I had a different quote from the seventh seal, but changed it and forgot to change the source.

I'll fix that when I get home : )

And totally out of the blue my neighbor had a reaper up this year. It was cool not being the only heathen in this neighborhood for a change!

Terry Pratchett's incarnation of Death is one of my favorite literary characters. There's a great scene, I think in Reaper Man, when he's striding along the bottom of a trench deep under the ocean, where a small anemone is about to die. He takes out a small case, removes a tiny scythe, and delicately collects the tiny anemone's ghost. He's not an evil portent of doom - just a humble servant of the universe who treats his job with reverence and care.

"What can the harvest hope for, if not the care of the reaper man?"
