[Death miniatures series stories]

Death miniatures are fictional ultra-small stories related to death. The goal is to draw out emotions and make the reader think more about death, which is the only thing that we keep on avoiding, even though it is defining our life and behavior from the moment we are born till the day we draw our last breath…

She always loved this toy.

From the moment that she saw it she could never sleep without it.

She would be so happy now.

Holding it in her small little hands.

A small fluffy octopus with seven arms.

We had laughed so much with that.

Look at her now.

With the sevenctopus again in her tiny arms…

A touch on my shoulder.

It was time.

I gave her a kiss.

(Sleep tight my child)

The tears rising.

But as the coffin was closing…

I could still see the toy.

And for a moment.

Without knowing why or how.

I just smiled.

(Oh, she loves this toy!)

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
