Famous last words

Things change:
Word has come that Joko Beck’s last words before dying were not, as I noted in a previous posting, « This, too, is wonder… »
The successor of Joko who had sent the first message about those words explained in her second message that her phrasing had given the erroneous impression that those words had been spoken, when in fact, she said, she doesn’t know what her teacher’s last words were.
So now the record is straight, as we say. Or not.
Whatever she said or didn’t say is not really the point anyway, for after all is said and done or not the great matter is still simply life and death.
