Work is love made visible

“I think one of the most important aspects of the coffin is that it can be carried. And I think we’re meant to carry each other, and I think carrying someone you love, committing them, is very important for us that we deal with death; we want to know that we have played our part and that we have shouldered our burden. So, if we make it too convenient, then we’re depriving ourselves of a chance to get stronger so that we can carry on.”

How absolutely beautiful – I want someone like that to make my coffin – to enter the doorway of death carried by loved ones in a coffin wrought with love.
