How do you deal with the mortality of those around you Simon? I apologize if this is an insensitive thing to ask, or makes you feel negative feelings, but I am young and just having to face it for the first time, so I thought I might ask advice from someone older and wiser than I am.

If you have it in you, read a post on my website called “Cream cheese potatoes, a eulogy”. I think that will give you the idea of how I feel about it.

I don’t process it so much as despise it. I view myself in many ways as a keeper of ghosts. It is the only way one can ever actually be haunted.

Thank you Simon. It must be awfully hard to share so much of yourself with us.

Not at all. It’s the easiest thing in the world. Or at least, it is the only thing I see fit to call valuable at the moment.
