3 CONVERSATIONS

  1. Dear Mariah,
    Such logical good sense, but often we prefer to remain in denial. People are more friendly and conversational. There is always much talk of ‘someone we know’ who fell victim. But yes, it is a ‘creepy’ but essential thing to do; write a will, provide preferences. For example, I want to be cremated as burial would be claustrophobic. We’re usually positive minded but when a pandemic is close, reality has to kick in. One elderly gentleman once said to me, ‘We’re on borrowed time, you know.’ Rightly or wrongly, I just carry on as normal, but reach out to people more. Especially the elderly. Mariah, thank you so much for your outstanding article.

  2. Mariah,
    I so love this conversation… It can be a game changer if you can surrender to all of the ‘fears’ that go with dying.
    My husband just recorded an audio file of him reading his favorite poem ‘From Blossoms’ by Li-Young Lee. This will be played at his memorial service some day…. far far away we hope.

    • What a beautiful idea, Carolyn. A recording can always be updated if we decide something else is more important 5 years from now – should we live that long. But if we leave tomorrow, our loved ones will treasure it.
