Death is inevitable, enjoying life isn’t!
While we must all die one day, how much we enjoy life is very much down to the individual.

Listening to the radio recently they were talking about having a good death. “Was it ever possible to be happy at the moment of someone’s death?” asked the presenter. What no one mentioned was the inevitability of death for us all. Do we look at the question the wrong way round? Should we care more about having a good life than a good death? Can one lead to the other? While death is inevitable having a good life isn’t.
Come to the Death Cafe and discuss this and much more……….
