The following recorded conversation about aging and mortality resulted from the friendships that formed in an online chat group ostensibly devoted to the NBA professional basketball team, the Golden State Warriors. So this is something that has come from my participation in the online experience.
I have always lived under the shadow of death, because my father died at a young age very suddenly. This summer has imposed the reality of mortality yet more upon my consciousness. The kind of conversation that occurs here should be much more common than it is.
The recording I am citing begins with an excursion into astrology. Those who are not astrologically disposed can skip straight to the interview segment. The broadcast may not be available at no cost much longer.
I have really appreciated this podcast, too. It has been humbling—and an important teaching—to know and follow along in this process.
