Impromptu End of Life conversation captured on video It started out as an experiment: there was a new video camera, an excuse to get together with a good friend who ‘does the lighting’ for movies and commercials. He makes everything look beautiful. And why not get in pizza and invite some friends, and get a proper lighting lesson and camera test.
Pizza topping had to take into account various cultures: Hindu, Muslim, Mexican-Catholic, Irish-Catholic, Anglican.
Chowing down, the ‘what’re you up to’s’ led to my continued interest in all things related to end of life. Sparked quite a convo!
And so a purpose was found and a flash video chat created. The result was too good not to post.
As always, I am indebted to the tweeps and communities dedicated to a dignified end of life, as free of suffering as possible: world-wide #hpm, #DWDchat, #EOLchat – information at the insanely helpful Symplur Healthcare Hashtags.
With props to my much esteemed fellow discussers:The Conversation Project, Death Cafes, Death over Dinner The question I posed: “Why is it so hard to talk about dying.”
