The Invitation: Rich and Raw Conversations about Aging, Death & Dying

Originally an interview project, I invited adults over 21 to share their thoughts about aging, dying and death. Speaking about these taboo topics with a rare openness and honesty, participants shared their beliefs, fears, and wisdom. When my own dad became ill, I felt overwhelmed and unprepared, and was surprised to realize how the interviewees had given me the courage and strength I needed for what I was about to experience.

This book, The Invitation, weaves my experiences and the interviewees’ personal stories in a compelling way that will engage and absorb you. A special chapter includes the interview questions and creative ways to explore them yourself.

"As I Get Older" Greeting Cards and Poster

Reading through the interviews, I noticed that some of the questions about aging generated incredible responses. Sometimes humourous, sometimes profound, they are from people whose ages ranged from 20-somethings to over 90 years old. Their collective wisdom inspired beautiful greetings cards and a poster. Come on over and buy one at The Store!
