Until 2004, I was an independent and active woman -- a former airline sales exec and then a high school educator. Then my body kept betraying me. I was finally diagnosed with ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease -- confined to a wheelchair and unable to speak. With life at a slower pace, I learned to live a more conscious and mindful life -- buying, eating and other choices. I listen instead of talking, and I observe instead of running and rushing.

What do you say to a dying man?
Since I was planning to write about this topic, I came across this article and thought I would put it out there so those of you who are interested, can read it, mull it over, and then read my response to it later, when I get around to it. I agree with the writer of the article on some points, but not on others. Then again, he is newly-diagnosed, and I am in my sixth year since diagnosis, so I have a whole different perspective. To read the article, click on the title.
