This advert appeared in the Norwegian Saturday papers
It’s for a funeral director – well ahead of the game in my opinion.

How to close a door?
The smell of you.
The coat in the hallway.
The cup you drank from.
The food you put in the freezer.
The papers with your handwriting.
A plant that no longer gets watered.
The room you filled with your voice.
You are not coming back here.
The door shall be closed behind you.
In a vacuum of grief, your story will be told.
Just you. The person we loved.
The thoughts will come, maybe.
Can anything be different?
Perhaps a small detail,
a piece of music, a speech,
something out of the ordinary?
Closing a door is not easy.
We know, because we have been closing doors since 1956.
Nobody is the same. Why should funerals be?
