Thanks, Steve - I was very moved by how you helped him process what had happened to him. Patti Digh
writes a blog called 37 Days.
She started it when her stepfather passed away, after being diagnosed with lung cancer 37 days prior to his death. She envisioned it as a collection of things written down for her daughters - advice on how to live consciously in the world. How would you spend your time if you knew you had only 37 days left to live?
Her essays are moving and funny and insightful. She's been writing the blog for several years now, and she just had a book published, called Life is a Verb
, of 37 of the essays. In celebration of the publication, she's been posting some of her readers' answers to that question.
It's hard not to think of something like that question when someone close to you dies.
Thanks so much for sharing your story.
