Quote of the day

Charles Cowling

 

“I cannot stress this enough. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being interested in mortality and death. Don’t let anyone ever tell you you are “sick” or “morbid” or “deviant.” It is patently untrue. Death is where every single one of us will end up. To feign disinterest in such a fundamental thing is denial, plain and simple. Read everything you can about buy cialis pharmacy death. Read the philosophers, read the scientists. Figure out what you (not your culture or your religion) believe happens to a body after death and what rituals make sense to you. In this case, ignorance is not bliss. With death, ignorance is fear.”

 

 

From ‘On the Fear of Death’ by  Caitlin Doughty. Read it all; it’s brillianthere.

Fantastic indeed – just lost an hour to the order of The Good Death. Wonderfully refreshing – I want more…
