Be Here Then

why and how to write & create an ethical will, hospice card, or other legacy

Writing about illness, end-of-life issues

While having to spend a bit more time on family care and away from here, I came across this post from NPR Health News, “Why More Patients Should Blog About Illness and Death.”  Title just makes you want to run and read it, yes?  No, most of us probably would rather run the other way.  Just for a second — don’t.

I think it’s a good read, and a great prompt.   Think about some conversations you may need to have with your own family.   And think about what you want to leave as your legacy.  If you write a blog along these lines, then you already have the material for an ethical will.  If you read some of these blogs, then you will undoubtedly get some wonderful ideas and, I hope, the comfort of knowing others are having these difficulties, and these conversations, and doing all right.

Good reading to you!
