“It’s a blessing to be old.
All that suffering is behind us.
Now there is only death.
What a relief.”

Chinese women having their funeral portraits taken.

Peter, I keep coming back to this. I adore this photo and this idea, that we can die gracefully. I had a friend do it, Cheryl, who died at 33 from cancer. She was so amazing and kind and funny. I feel grateful to have been her friend, to learn what I learned, what I am still learning from her.
