A man and his dog were
walking along a road. The man was enjoying the
scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was
dead. He remembered dying, and
that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He
wondered where the road was leading them.
a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side
of the road. It looked like fine
marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken
by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight. When he
was standing before it he saw a
magnificent gate in the arch that looked like Mother of
Pearl, and the street that led
to the gate looked like pure gold.
