I was thinking of you while walking through a cemetery over the holidays! For me, I am still very much practicing being able to "be with" death. In my family, it wasn't hidden but continued discussions with friends (like you) definitely help to normalize feelings and create space for other thoughts and feelings, and to feel more settled.

Hi Leanne!

I have enjoyed being in or around cemeteries for years. Being there really does help to keep me rooted in life and it's many aspects. It also keeps me mindful of the impermanence of being alive, and to focus on being a positive influence for myself and everyone else.

"The clock of life is wound but once, and no man has the power to tell just when the hands wil stop, at late or early hour. Now is the only time you own: live, love, toil with will, place no faith in tomorrow for tomorrow the clock may then be still.”

I have MP3 recordings of the funeral of two of my grandparents who passed in the early 2000s. I’m so thankful someone had the foresight to record them.

You may already know of these, but The Order of the Good Death website and Ask a Mortician YouTube channel are two of my favorite resources 🖤
