Back From The Dead

Resurrection stories are stories about death, where the death takes place in the middle. As lives, careers, relationships, and projects give in to entropy, we’re increasingly fixated on two ideas: our knowledge of certain doom, and our remembrance of a time when we lacked that knowledge. The birthday celebration of a man who could not die masks the more ancient ritual acknowledging the inevitability of winter. Which is to say: death.

Everybody dies. But everybody also sleeps, forgets, hungers, and thirsts: emptinesses that can be filled. We all want to wake up, to remember, to eat, to drink. To come back from the dead.
