We recently received an email from The GroundSwell Project with this reminder message:
We believe that end-of-life conversations are best done WAY BEFORE Emergency.
We advocate for pretty much any other place.
Lounge rooms. Over dinner tables. During long walks. Over soup. With cake.
A hand-written note, delivered with love, will also get the job done.
All this is good stuff, provided we get around to it. Good intentions are not sufficient. Putting off won’t get the job done. Resolve is what is needed and then taking the opportunities when they arise.
