Exclusive Original Artwork. “After Life” There are those who know, and those who don’t. At least, that’s what they say. I don’t trust the ones who say they don’t know; they’re the ones to watch. If you observe carefully enough you’ll see a person’s eyes flicker as they pretend not to know, catching at a fleeting impression, an intimation of something unpleasant. I have time to think about all this, lying here in my ancient bed. ‘Going home to be looked after,’ the hospital porter had said encouragingly as I was wheeled out. Being sent home to die, more like it. I didn’t mind really. I’m curious. Most of the time. I’ve spent the best part of my life trying not to have any beliefs. It’s been a satisfaction to watch the disquiet appear on a fresh face when I tell them this. At dinner parties there’s always someone keen to explain what they believe (what they mean is ‘what they know’), no matter how ludicrous or unfashionable. I nod, politely. They think I’m on board. They believe me too to be a Catholic, a Muslim, a New Age Spiritualist. I have that way about me; nondescript, an easy receptacle for the infirmities of others. Eventually they pause, wanting an appreciative remark. I say lightly, matter of factly: I try not to have any beliefs.
