Heated Sidewalks? And Other Dreams for Downtown...

photo Randy Sutherland
In this April edition of Conversations Worth Having, we are in conversation with Marty Williams of the Downtown Guelph Business Association.  It was the right kind of weather to hear his cool idea about heated sidewalks!

I'm with him on a couple of ideas, that would work well in our wonderful city of music...

Its good that you get to hear a Jane Lewis tune when you listen, right?  For me it was so lovely I could not bring myself to edit it out, per preferred podcast policy.

Conversations Worth Having - 7. Reflections

Remember the Conversing About Death episode? A recording from the art show Death Perspectives aired, as well as a discussion with Death Doula Marion Wilms. In the Reflections episode we hear from the other host of our local Death Cafes, and get the chat going by playing a game I took away from that powerful, inspirational art exhibit.

You will hear, in this interview with Christine Lafazanous about the gifts of ritual and ceremony, and how to create space to pause and reflect on meaningful events and connections of our lives. As well as a great tune from Hazel Dickens  "Just let me live, love, let me cry, but when I go just let me die
Among the friends who'll remember when I'm gone."

-- Enjoy,

Ep 6? Conversations Worth Having ~ Five Wishes

photo by Randy Sutherland, Guelph, 2017
When is one’s death reasonably foreseeable? My dad has always said “We’re all gonna die of something” and you'll hear my parents' actual voices in this episode!!

You know this stat right? 10/10 of us are going to die.  

As one’s life changes, and one's unique health condition evolves, one’s hopes change.  

For someone with a terminal illness, at first they might want to survive it.  Then they may want to survive it at least for some amount of time. Then they may start to wish at least for a good death…  hopes change.  

Thanks for tuning in to a Conversations Worth Having series on aging and death -- aimed at helping you discuss hopes and wishes on important topics with others.  This time, we will hear from Jennifer Mackie, an expert on Medical Assistance in Dying... and give a listen to Neon Tombstone from the Wood Brothers.

We will also hear an excerpt of another CFRU program - Clan a gael - from Hallowe'en, and a day the host John dedicated a song to this project, to called "Finnegan's Wake."

enjoy! Kim Logue-like-Vogue
