Thoughts on mortality

A sombre tone for my second post – my grandmother passed today and I’m pondering the nature of life and death. When I was a little girl, Nan cooked and sewed and knitted with me. In recent years those things were beyond her, but I think of her often when I use the skills she taught me. All that knowledge, to be passed on or lost. I wonder how many skills are lost forever because they weren’t passed on, how many people are poorer for the loss. Lifetimes of accumulated knowledge that disappear with the passing of each person.
What I’ve learned today is this – share the wisdom. Pass on what you know.
