Death, Dying and Dessert
It is so human to want to deny death. Even if we understand we are likely to die, we don't expect it to happen in our lifetime. Denial isn't a bad strategy... * after we have given careful thought to what we want in a healthcare crisis, * after we have stepped aside from denial long enough to put in place the legal documents that can save chaos, grief and, often, unnecessary expense when we die, * after we have talked with our families and doctors about our wishes. Death, Dying and Dessert. Reflections on Twenty Questions About Dying is a book for healthy adults of all ages. It makes it easy to work through the organizational, emotional and spiritual issues that can reduce anxiety about end-of-life. There is wisdom, warmth and humor in this accessible and useful book. Read it, make notes, find clarity and take action. And then be kind enough to hand a copy to family members and friends so they, too, won't let denial cause unnecessary difficulty. Talking about death is not dangerous but, in fact, life-giving. Here are the twenty questions on which this book reflects: 1. Why Is Dying Important When We Are So Busy Living? 2. When Is It Time To Think About Dying?
