Dying a not so painful death

I had been in the hospice house in Salem, OR for two months when this article*  appeared on my BBC news feed.  And I had posted it on a previous Facebook page.  It was this article where I learned about the European Association for Palliative Care and the need for palliative care services in the former Soviet Socialist Republics.

Why would I be encouraged at this time to embark on the in-depth study of dying when I was, in fact, dying?  That’s because I am getting a head start on my next life that will be lived in Europe.  This certainty is something I can’t explain; I just feel it in my bones.  And that encourages me to make use of the time left to me in this life.
