I was being imprecise again sorry. What I meant was it is out of my
hands what happens after I die. However, in reading your response...
even if I did not communicate that clearly, I like your idea even better
and I will be incorporating that into my creed. Like you I take
responsibility for my actions. My supervisor chided me this morning
that I need to stop aplogizing when things happen that are not my
fault. This is a separation I still need to work on.

I am caught up in that fault - no fault thing even though I also decided
a long time ago that things usually just happen.... and no one is "at
fault" at least in the way we commonly think.

Have a good day.
