In my postings as the Grateful Apologist, I have reached the halfway point in my year of writing about the concepts of allowing natural death – advanced aging, frailty and death. I have considerable work to do if this work is going to reach the folks who may benefit from this other way of experiencing “old”. “Courage my love” is my own mantra as I push forward with this work that still will not let me go.
There is no denying the spiritual nature of contemplating the end of life. And so I am including today a quote that sums up what I have found to be true. And thanks to my friend Grainne, here it is;
“Everything is a choice between fear and love, we may as well choose love because death is coming.” -Simon Amstell
