Ready or Not

Someone on TV said that Senator Kennedy, in his final days, was, in the common phrase "ready to go."

I wonder what that feels like–being ready to go–or even what it means exactly.

Resolved? Welcoming with open arms?

Or just practically speaking, "ready," as in having put things in order, tied up loose ends, made the necessary preparations.

Maybe one day I will know what that feels like, but, really, when a person’s time comes, I think, more than likely, it’s "ready or not."
