That death bean article was so interesting! Makes all the more sense to enjoy a slab of human with chianti and fava beans, in a way. Also, those fava flowers are gorgeous, did you see them?

Theodora says

Thank you as always for posting such interesting links. The goodbye box was beautiful.

Trisha says

The Goodbye Box is a brilliant and long overdue tool that is so obviously beneficial to grieving children. Why are we so slow to think these things up? Thankfully, this woman took action. Let us all be more proactive with our ideas surrounding grief and it’s healthy integration into our culture!
