Vancouver Courier: Dead of Winter

Filed under: end of life — Honilima @ 11:40 am


Death and taxes, what else do we have in common, putting our pants on one leg at a time? Why can we talk so easily about pants and taxes and not about death?

A newspaper series, from our neighbors to the north, tackles just this topic. Pat Johnson, writing in the Vancouver Courier has begun a series called “Dead of Winter:  Death Mourning and Rituals.”  I found these to be the most interesting Viewing Death the Traditional Way and Burial or Cremation to be particularly of interest. The more we as a cultural can normalize death as a part of life the healthier we will all be.
