I’ve never felt better Last Words of Douglas Fairbanks Sr If the road to Hell is paved with good intentions the road to death is paved with platitudes Nigel BarleyI know this will likely sound maudlin I promise you I’m a joyful person but I’ve been thinking a lot about death in the last few years especially after my Father died and as with everything in my life I try to find answers or at the very least a path to understanding through books This was an eye opening one filled with the practical and the emotional the intimate and the spiritual and it illuminated some previously dark cornersThe author is a nurse end of life educator Buddhist practitioner and teacher and explains how ‘these strands have given her a measure of euanimity about the inevitable sea of change that is human life’ With eual parts compassion and frankness she addresses among other things what it means to die ‘a good death’ what to say and not to say last months weeks days and hours; what happens to a body after death and what can be the all consuming griefOver and above all that I learned I really appreciated the appendices preparing a death plan advance directives organ and tissue donation and assisted death Not subjects we want to address but necessary because none of us is getting out of here alive We forgetthat love and loss are intimate companions that we love the real flower so much than the plastic one love the evanescence of autumn’s brilliant colors the cast of twilight across a mountainside lasting only a moment It is this very fragility that opens our heartsI read this with a nonfiction book club and the meeting turned out to be such an interesting experience and it reminded me how little we know of the often painful road each of us travels in our lives If I’d known people better I would have demanded a group hug at the end of our discussion Grief is a story that must be told over and overGrief is the breath after the last oneRecommended if you’re willing to face some grim realities with a little bit of humor and a large does of kindness from a wise teacher
