Get that elephant out of the room

‘Last lecture’ of Randy Pausch is absolutely incredible. I’ve watched it several times by now and each time I’m discovering something new, something else to pay attention to or re-think through.

I’ve finished his book just few days ago and unlike the lecture where the impressive part for me was on “how to lead your life”, what I liked now the most was the openness when talking about death. And one thing I’ve realised is that we don’t actually talk freely, loud and clear about death. We just learn to deal with it when we have to. Could a sort of “preparation” help for different good byes?
