Writer, editor, publishing pro and IRL friend Megan Radford (@MeganRadford on Twitter) mentioned this song today online. Took me way back to the ’80s. Because, you know, I like to date myself. I always dug this song.
Stephen Levine offers a gentle perspective that is inclusive, comforting, and lucid. I respected the lack of dogma and the introduction to the Buddhist perspective without feeling “preached to.” The writing and editing felt somewhat muddled at times, but the book delivered what I’d hoped. All told, it is a valuable read for those seeking to explore and expand a perspective on the dying process which we must all embrace in one capacity or another.
