Dying for Life was dead good
A very quick post (as I'm still exhausted) to say how brilliant the Dying for Life Event was. Over 150 people came to chat about dying, meet the skeletons and look at the pretty pictures. Some even bought the book (a few spares are still available, and cheaper from me than Blurb - contact me!).
It was so lovely to talk to people with such different backgrounds and such different views, all learning from each other new ways to talk about and handle death. I had long discussions with a GP in palliative care, a retired chaplain, an archaeologist, someone with a long term health problem and a German journalist!
Our last visitor of the day was probably the youngest and most hands on. She couldn't be persuaded to release this lovely jawbone. I hope she has a long and fruitful career with human remains in the future.
