I am off to a talk tomorrow about dying. That may not sound like a great way to spend an afternoon but it is death that gives life meaning I suppose. There would seem to nothing more futile than an immortal human exsistence.

I ran across this 10 minute talk by Kathleen Taylor. Grab a coffee or tea and listen to here experiences with the dying.

“How would you live every day as if it were your last?  Go skydiving? Attempt to ride a bull for 2.7 seconds? Kathleen Taylor has spent over 20 years as a counselor and community engagement facilitator for the dying and has found that in the last chapter of their lives, most people become their authentic selves. They become courageous – they change their minds, apologize, forgive… they find joy in the smallest moments.

In this TEDx talk, Taylor urges us not to wait until we are at the end of our lives to find our true selves.”
