Thoughts for sharing:

From ‘The White Owl Flies In and Out of the Field, by Mary Oliver                                  

Maybe death

isn’t darkness after all, but so much light

wrapping itself around us  -

as soft as feathers –

that we are instantly weary

of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes,

not without amazement,

and let ourselves be carried,

as through the translucence of mica,

to the river

that is without the least dapple or shadow –

that is nothing but light – scalding, aortal light -

in which we are washed and washed

 

out of our bones.

Saturday 25 September saw the first (we hope) of the North-East London ‘in person’ Death Cafes at the lovely East of Eden café in Walthamstow. Big thanks to Abby and her team for offering us use of the venue. As one of the attendees fedback: ‘East of Eden feels like the perfect venue, calm and reflective…

The online Death Cafes are an amazing experience, but as everyone expressed there is something so different about being in the same space and being ‘in person’.  The connection is more immediate and well, more three dimensional!

As always, the conversations were wide-ranging covering a whole host of thoughts, feelings and topics ...

There are things that you plan weeks, or even months, in advance with a great burst of enthusiasm and energy. And then the date comes around and a great number of things have happened in between; unexpected challenges, good things too, and you wonder if you have planned your calendar badly as you aren’t sure you have enough energy for this particular event.  Perhaps that’s just me, but it was the case with the virtual Death Café, Debbie & I hosted on Tuesday 10 August 2021. Number two of the North East London series.

How strange then to start an event tired and end it feeling uplifted ...

Swedish death cleaning. Just one of the topics that came out of my first virtual Death Café. Well never mind the virtual, my first Death

Café. It was planned to be a North East London gathering hosted by myself and Debbie, who is Death Café-experienced, but ended up

being a gloriously global affair with participants from yes, north-east London, but also Scotland, Ireland and Canada.  Back to the death

cleaning or death decluttering. The idea behind it is to release the burden of your things from the loved ones you leave behind. ‘It’s a

loving thing to do for the people you care about.’ There was ...
