Seems They Know III

Have written about the prescience of the pending or nearly dead here and here.

Maybe something widely observed and understood. From William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying (1930):

I mind my mammy lived to be seventy and more. Worked every day, rain or shine, never a sick day since her last chap was born until one day she kind of looked around her and then she went and taken that lace-trimmed night gown she had had for forty-five years and never wore out of the chest and put it on and laid down on the bed and pulled the covers up and shut her eyes. “You all will have to look out for pa the best you can,” she said. “I’m tired.”
