Written by a hospice patient, this bookâ€™s intention is to illuminate death; a touchy subject usually avoided in our society. Confronted with the advanced stages of an aggressive form of breast cancer, Rebecca was no longer able to continue the productive path sheâ€™d enjoyed while healthy. Deathâ€™s proximity demanded a new approach to life. Disappointed but determined, the author engaged in activities she wouldnâ€™t have otherwise dared to do. Many people wish to know what terminal patients close to death are thinking, yet theyâ€™re afraid to ask. Rebecca shares the gritty realities of facing a limited lifespan while embarking on adventures that explore human spirituality and the nature of the soul. This little collection of stories and informative articles intends to educate and enlighten as well as entertain. In dominant American culture, as well as in many other â€œmodernâ€ societies, the subject of dying is heavily sanitized if not avoided altogether. Death is personified as a fearsome, dark robed skeleton swinging a scythe, eager to snatch our loved ones away to the unknown. Societyâ€™s spurious impression doesnâ€™t foster honest and open communication regarding the subject and itâ€™s a shame. Because of this avoidance, when weâ€™re faced with our own mortality we donâ€™t know what to do and weâ€™re terribly unprepared. Physical death is as normal as birth but we have become woefully out of touch with this aspect of life. People fear it, deny it, and flee from it. The author defies social taboos and tells us what we really want to know but are afraid to ask.
