    Thanks for the list!

    It’s Good To Be Here, by David Giuliano is a small press book that has just been released. David has been on the path with cancer for 20 years. I haven’t read the book yet, but have read a number of insightful columns he published that I expect have formed chapters, enough to recommend it if you are interested. He’s the former United Church moderator of Canada with really progressive politics. And although I am not Christian nor religious, the way he sometimes references those texts can also be interesting.

    I have been reading The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche in an attempt to process my father’s death and the emotions that surrounded it. I don’t know if you’ve read it. It’s been the one book that’s helped me not only understand some of my father’s reactions as he died, but also shake me out of my own complacency about whatever time I have left.
