I tried to create a link to the NYTimes Magazine article: Will We Ever Arrive at the Good Death? from today, but didn't succeed. I will talk to someone who knows how to do this tomorrow...But anyway, about the article:
This is a courageous article. And a very hard read. I felt strongly compellled to read it while at the same time, deeply uncomfortable as I did. Its unflinching simplicity and insight about death made it very scary and unforgettable. I will think about this one again.
And it's also really a good reminder about living fully, when you can.
