"...[M]uch of what was out there was just dishonest -
misleading even - and just not particularly helpful."
Comment by the husband of the author of Unwinding the Miracle, which was published
after her death.
"I was left feeling inadequate, like:
'Oh my God. These people view [cancer] as a challenge.
As an opportunity.' They were written almost as though you had just been given
a goal, like losing ten pounds."
So true, so poignant. It occurs
to the PhD. that the current trend to view
death as another adventure has been sucked into the vortex of "just do it," and rah-rah
that we see hyped by the Influencers. Soon I envision festive "death caps" and "cancer shrugs"
with encouraging logos appearing in the Community Marketplace if not in the Communal Mind.
Think on it.
