Final Fling and others will be marking the week with a Death Cafe… the growing movement to encourage open conversations about life, death, loss, grief… all the things that have been a bit of a taboo for way too long. If you have an interest in your own life and your eventual end of life, get involved! Look out for Twitter chats every day from 1-2pm on various subjects
Last week I watched an incredibly uplifting, moving and inspiring documentary called Alive Inside about the miraculous power of music in accessing memory and reinvigorating people lost to dementia or Alzheimers. I’m not over-exaggerating when I use the word ‘miracle’. And it wasn’t that Biblical once-in-a-lifetime kind of miracle but a reliable, repeatable miracle that happens over and over again. If you do one thing this week, spare 6 minutes and 45 whole seconds to watch this excerpt from the documentary.
