presence & absence, visible & hidden

do ask yourself:

Caitlin Doughty’s list inspired by her life’s work and partly by Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal

  1. What do you fear most about dying?
  2. What are your hopes about dying?
  3. What would be your ideal death?
  4. How much do you want medical intervention to play a role?
  5. How would you like [folks] to care for your body after you die?
  6. What could [loved ones] do at a funeral or memorial service to make you feel honored?
