As a hospice social worker, I am around dying people every day. This book is a reflection of the conversations that I seem to have frequently with patients and their loved ones. In my spare time I love to read magazines and then ultimately, create collage art. I created each page separately but after I was done I noticed some themes that ran through the piece. 1. We all die 2. It doesn't have to be sad. 3. Being with the dying can open up an awareness of spirit, God, the Universe. I became a hospice social worker after I had 15+ family members die. I realized that I no longer feared death or dying because I had come to understand that it's inevitable. I came to believe that being with the dying was my purpose in life. That's not to say I'm sentimental. I was in the first few years, but now I am much more grounded. Some of the messages in this book may seem harsh or shocking if the reader is one who has avoided thinking about death or dying. You think it's a shock now... just wait. You're better off facing the concept of mortality head-on.
