When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was a bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.
When it’s over, I don’t want to wonder if I have
made of my life something particular, and real.
I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened
or full of argument.
I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.

How do you navigate change and endings?
Do you stay in relationships longer than you should?
Do you allow yourself to have conscious goodbyes?
What is your relationship to loss?
How different might you be if you discovered you have 1 year to live?
What insights do near death experiences provide and do they alleviate the fear?
Is the fear of death also the fear of life?
Who or what dies?
