Wow, it's been a LONG time since I've posted! But I'm back, promise.
I've been very busy with my day job, which sometimes means dwelling on death in in a very different, often exhausting way. To confess: I work as a writer/producer for non-fiction tv, and the majority of my projects have been true crime stories. Writing about other peoples' tragedies (and not always feeling good about it) has taken up all space in my psyche allotted to loss & death.
With my free time I escaped back into life - finding solace in friends and family, always aware of how precious and fleeting our time is here. Honestly, who wants to dwell on death when life offers so much?
Yet ... yet. The Modern Mourner blog has always been waiting for me. It's been quiet, polite, all the while knowing how much I love it. Helping others find meaningful (and beautiful!) ways to say goodbye is truly my life's work. It's where my heart lies.
Life is beautiful ... and Death should be too.
