Family gathered for Christmas Day: gifts, Prime Rib & Yorkshire pudding, stories, naps, exercise, and movies. I found the Japanese movie, 'Departures', to be most interesting (summary at an approach to death with dignity - a gracious 'sending off'(departures) - facing cultural stigmas head on. Dealing with death enables a greater passion for life - especially with those closest to us. Being an undertaker: such difficult - but necessary work - is done with a sense of reverence and grace. Cello music is woven into the story effectively - every note welcomed. With honesty the author maintains complexity while leaving room for hope. Check it out - it's worth it!
