Labyrinth of life

Watching Anand on Yahoo Movies made me muse over the change of my outlook to life (and death) over the years. When in college, I used to think that death is the eventual progression of life and that I should live life king size even in the face of death (in case I am ever diagnosed with a terminal illness). After marriage, it changed to a provider where I wanted to save and live life frugally to ensure I leave my wife a comfortable life beyond me. (No, I am not diagnosed with any critical illness yet.. touchwood... just being paranoid). But now, after holding my first born in my arms, I am not willing to contemplate death anytime soon. With luck, this will not follow Murphy's law. I guess I am slipping deeper and deeper into the abyss of worldly pleasures and attachments.
