News for the living.

Strange days indeed…

As the world tries to get ahead of, and a handle on, this viral pandemic, our team met (virtually) to decide what we would say and send out in this newsletter. Were things just too heavy right now to focus on death and dying? Or is it an elephant in that just wandered into the kitchen?
Clearly that elephant needs to be addressed!
Even though death is the constant shadow of life our awareness of it comes and goes. Right now, as we shelter in place, self isolate, lay low and find a new balance at home, we have the perfect opportunity to feel our vulnerability and to talk with our loved ones about what we want when death knocks on our door. We also have the perfect opportunity to find joy in the small things, and gratitude for all the goodness in life. As the great American writer James Baldwin said:  “Trust life, and it will teach you, in joy and sorrow, all you need to know.”
