Where we will die and, most importantly, how to spend time meanwhile. Next to birth, death is one of our most profound experiences. Dying is not without its pain but it can be meaningful and we can decide to be more aware and more conscious in how we orient ourselves toward the inevitable end of our lives. Dr. Miller suggests that we need to be clear on our “goals of
