Footprints in the Windsm # 1275–On the boat dock, watching the sun

Footprints in the Windsm # 1275

People need this conversation about living well our last chapter. They need to realize that as Jerry Walthall said, some of us want to die on the boat dock watching the sun and drinking a beer with our dog. I’d add: not in a hospital ICU with beep-beep-beep.

But the family, the family, gotta love ’em: they want to hang on to the last thread. “Do something” says our society. “Do something” say our bones. “More existence is more life.” “One more breath, one more year, maybe something can be found.”

Where is the value in dying well, in living well up to our last breath?

Please pass it on.
