a tale of two hearts

visiting nana


It was great to see your nana that day. So nice to see that she recognised and knew who you were this time.

It's surreal to think just how removed we are in our day to day lives from the reality of death.
We've constructed social and health policies so that we don't have to see it. Out of sight out of mind, I guess.
Although I'm not convinced it's good for us.
I wonder if the choices we all make on a day to day basis would be different if we had our grandparents living at home with us, where we could see their bodies and minds deteriorate before our eyes.

I wonder if it would help us put todays challenges, our dreams, ambitions and worries into perspective?

...hmmm...very cheery thoughts arn't they :p
