We all of us are aging – really just another word for living, gathering new experiences, accumulating wisdom and scars, growing and changing, and then after a while, wearing out our various body parts. I have found that as my end point gets nearer, I experience this aging process differently. More aware of it, feeling each moment as precious, something to be savored, an invitation to go ever deeper.
I’d like to explore this new richness of living towards the end. The inherent comedy of changing bodies, the letting go of one thing after another, the anticipation of loss, the appreciation of the now, the mystery of the unknowable.
The inevitability, the inescapable reality, the both dreadful and exhilarating certainty that our lives will actually, really truly end.
Death is, after all, a once in a lifetime experience. I want to get all that I can out of it, as there is no chance for a “do-over”. No mulligans allowed.
Join me, Anna Willman, for a monthly conversation on the third Saturday of each month. Let’s share and learn from each other how we are all navigating this last passage. Speaking directly from our felt senses. Listening to each other with our whole bodies.
