Posted inside a co-worker’s cubicle (we work for hospice):
Death is only a change of condition: time and space are in you; you are not in time and space. – Swami Vivekandanda
I am letting go of my idea of time. I see that eternal life is not a question of “I will be forever,” but of “Now I am.” Eternity is time dying in me. – Jean Lanier
Death is the sound of distant thunder at a picnic. – W.H. Auden
Friends and family have asked me if it’s depressing to work in end-of-life healthcare. Morbid, to sit with death everyday. In truth it’s been the most life-affirming, priority-crystallizing job and experience I’ve ever had.
