Dying beautifullyMaybe it’s because I encountered death early in life that it holds no fear for me.

I was only nine or ten when my school friend died. Jane had a heart condition that meant she was physically weak and fragile, and most days she would have to stay in the classroom at playtimes.

Of heavenly blue and angel-feathered sky.

That have shaped us to shun the shaky and unsure?
