Death Cafe Dunedin - 3 November 2019
We met at a new venue this time. As summer approaches, the gorgeous beach front cafe we used to meet at could no longer assure us of a table so we opted for one at the racecourse that could. Perhaps because of the change of venue, or the glorious weather, only four people came. However, having just a few of us meant that each person had lots of time to talk which was wonderful. We spoke about so many things including whether its "normal" to think about death every day; the treasured objects that remind us of dead loved ones; how one can continues to live a full life as one ages and how nurses prepare the body after a person dies. It was interesting, poignant and as always, sometimes very funny.
