The thing about the dead is they’re not

Today I’m rebroadcasting a post from when we lived in Germany four years ago, on the theme of death and my step-dad’s passing, five years ago today. Enjoy the holiday, and may the spirits be with you.

    This was a great post, and in fact I’ve been thinking about this topic all day since I read this article in the NYTimes called In the Presence of All Souls: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/31/opinion/in-the-presence-of-all-souls.html?ref=deathanddying&_r=0

    It makes me feel a little bit like the Cowardly Lion (“I do believe in spooks, I do believe in spooks, I do, I do, I do believe in spooks …) But in a good way.
