I'm excited to tell you about Last List. A new website that allows users to make their ultimate playlist that they leave for loved ones to play at their funeral and remember them by when they pass away.

You make the list, we store it and release it to the guardians you've chosed when the time comes.

dignity is hard work

dignity is hard work

About 20 years I found myself following my careerpath after seeing how my own mom dealt with the death of her mom and wondering if we all grieve the same in some fundamental way as human beings. 

I began by asking what people themselves said about how they prepared for death and dying. In one place where I spent a lot of time visiting (over 10 years), a small kingdom in Africa called Swaziland (eSwatini) affected by AIDS, I learned it there, to them, it was about dignity.

Dignity is a funny word. It usually means being respectably treated to American listeners. To the people I met there ...

Look for Me in the Stars

Look for Me in the Stars

Hi! 

I've created a 40 day online program for death, grief and loss. The program consists of daily yoga + meditation practices, creative exercises, art, poetry and music. I lost my Mother when I was a teenager and then my Father about five years ago (when I was 31). 

This is a passion project and I've launched a kickstarter to get it off the ground. 

Love!

Send messages and gifts during and after death.

Send messages and gifts during and after death.

Leg8cy was created due to the uncertainty of life.  You can send messages and gifts dated in the future that will be sent after your death.  This website was created because my brother in law passed away at a young age due to cancer.  He left behind a 6 year old daughter and I think he would have loved to leave her some messages.  Can you imagine if her dad left her a message for every birthday, how important that would be to her.  Leg8cy offers a free messaging service.

Night Swallowtails

Posted by Lis Horwich on Aug. 21, 2018, 2:37 p.m.


Night Swallowtails

A lovely collection of poems by Andrena Yeats ( a freind of mine). As the press realse from Macmillan says:

 

"When I first met Andrena she was dealing with her grief in a positive and creative way by composing a series of poems. I was struck by how honest they were, and how they progressed in stages through all aspects of human emotion.

Her vision is that her collection, Night Swallowtails, and the process of its creation will resonate with others going through similar circumstances and help them as it has her.

We are deeply grateful to Andrena for choosing us as one of the charities to benefit from ...

Dying Matters Poem

Posted by RachelMc on May 7, 2018, 8:46 a.m.


National Dying Matters week comes around every May. It is a time for us all to stop and think about our futures. Death will come to us all one day. Talking about it will not make it happen sooner; it will just mean that we and our loved ones are more prepared for it. We can legally appoint people to speak for us and make decisions on our finances and health if at any point we are unable to do this for ourselves. Planning our funerals can give comfort to our families, knowing our favourite readings or music is included. Writing our wills makes life much easier for those left behind. Dying matters. Let's get it right. 
 
Dying matters…
 
It’s got to happen one day;
Let’s hope it won’t be soon. 
It’s good to talk about it,
That elephant in the room.
 
Let’s make the most of living
Enjoy it while we can;
Let’s run and jump, dance around,
But also start to plan. 
 
Then when our bodies weaken
And can’t run any more,
Slow it to a walk or stroll,
Consider what’s in store. 
 
Then when time’s getting shorter,
We’re bound to beds or chairs,
Let’s read and write, paint and draw,
And sort out our affairs. 
 
There’s Powers of Attorney,
For finances or health, 
Funerals and written wills
To say who gets our wealth. 
 
For once our time is over, 
If we’ve talked it all through,
It’s better for our loved ones;
They’ll know just what to do.
