Thought for the day

Charles Cowling

Clarissa-Tan

 

“I wonder if, 

working with funerals 

and the bereaved, 

one can also be

too attached

to the idea of death, 

taking refuge in it.”

Clarissa Tan

You make me think long and hard – for which again, I thank you for the clarity of your insights and the generosity of your writing.
