A Good Place to Die

If you were given a choice of where to die, where would it be?

Meghan chose the ancient mountaintop where the seemingly endless valleys of blended emerald green and swirling paisley earth tones combine perfectly as the footrest for the distant Irish Sea, now capped by a line of clouds bearing a sunset blush. Sadly, the darkening twilight threatens to erase Meghan’s final vista.

As a gentle breeze softly gathers up her hair, Meghan slides down to the ground using the primordial volcanic rock as her backrest. She wonders how much longer it will be before the pills do their job. As gravity unwillingly slides her eyelids to darkness, she is finally at rest.

Megan abruptly sits up her eyes darting around her bedroom slowly realizing it was a nightmare that briefly claimed her soul.

I read once that if you die in your dreams, you die. Don't know if it's true but your story made me think about it.
