March 28, 2018 by den169 Death When I was young, I staunchly avoided every sideways glance Death threw my way. Now that I am old, I dare return even those piercing stares from Death’s deep, dark eyes, trusting now that compassion, in truth, rules the day. © 2018 Dennis Ference Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Thanks for the comment.
Amen. A friend in my apartment is consciously dying right now. I will miss her and her stark honesty. I think I will live at least ten more years and friends here will go before me. I’m fortunate to have companions on this journey. P.S.We live in an ordinary apartment and have covenanted to help each other age in place right here.
What a beautiful relationship. Blessings to both of you.
Thank you, Dennis.
Love that concept of Death’s sideways glance. Good to stare Death in the eyes now.
