I just got the most interesting freelance gig. I’ll be doing interviews with the dying for a project that’s collecting their thoughts about their lives, regrets, things they learned that they’d like to share, etc.

It really sounds fascinating, doesn’t it? It won’t be enough to live on, but it’ll be really interesting.

Part of my job will be tracking down candidates, so if you know anyone who might be interested in taking part, let me know.

  1. My hat’s off to you, Suze. After watching my folks pass on some years ago, I don’t think I’d have the strength to “interview” dying people, whether I knew them or not. Let me say that I admire you, or any caretaker for that matter, for gathering the compassion and strength necessary to deal with the dying. I’m a wimp with sadness and death. In fact, when my time comes I’ve always prayed that it comes quickly so I won’t have to vex over my own doom. God bless you and I hope you are able to give and get some joy in this endeavor!

  2. Sounds facinating! I’m 67 have a condition that will eventually kill me, and wish I could pass on what I’ve experienced, things I learned, etc. The previous generation’s wisdom, esp. in the ‘young’ US is too easily trashed. I could have learned from my previous generations if they had been willing to speak. I even started researching family history so I could find them, and talk to them. Think of thought provoking questions to ask them, that seems to loosen them up some. Why do we discard the elderly????

  3. Have also had death experiences from my condition, 3 all together, so Death is not an unknown to me. The ‘deaths’ that I have experinenced have been orgasmic, so not afraid to die.

  4. Will you be able to share some of what you experience with us as you do these interviews? I see myself as a healthy 72-year-old but thoughts about how I may meet my death — and that of my husband of 52 years — are more and more on my radar screen. I’d be interested in any insights you gain, as I share many of your values.
