Before and after death

A photographer interviewed and photographed people who were about to die in a cancer ward.  Very powerful.  Everyone seems to have a different view of their own death when it’s looking them in the face.  I wonder how I would take it if I knew that I only had a little while to live.  Is it better to know it’s coming or to be surprised when it does?

  1. Not personally which is why I wonder how I will acquit myself when the time comes. I hope that I will ‘die well’ as they say in the heroic tales. I’ve seen the moment of death looking into the eyes of my dog as we put her down and it’s pretty clear when someone is gone. Makes you wonder what that moment is like.
