Eat away our troubles, or, be eaten by the troubles?

Robert Lowell once said, “The light at the end of the tunnel is just the light of an oncoming train.”

But Yann Martel said, “The reason death sticks so close to life isn’t [just] biological necessity – it’s envy. Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud.”

And so, the best remedy right now is —

– food.
