I've always read obituaries, not because I am interested in death, but because I am interested in reading about people's lives. I was reading on this morning that said "she had a child-like appreciation of life," which is not something I'd wish to have written about me, but may pass as a compliment in some circles.
I think I should write my own obituary now, since I've had practise. It is an interesting thing to think about. A long time ago I did a portrait of a friend who is a stone-carver, and she wanted to trade. I wanted a cool memorial sculpture, but she was too alarmed by that idea to accept my plan, so nothing happened, sadly. I'd love to have a really cool stone sculpture for when I croak. I think that would be the greatest. Maybe I'll email her and see if we can get things going again...
