The idea for this episode on dying well--or dying gallantly and with dignity, if you will--has been on my radar screen for quite a while. The issue was finding the right guest to make it as powerful a show as it deserves to be. Enter my new friend Larry Indiviglia. First off, Larry is a United States Naval Academy graduate, so he knows plenty about duty, honor and sacrifice. On top of that, however, he had the particularly notable experience just this year of meeting a woman who was dying of cancer, falling in love, and being by her side until the very end. He has written a book about that experience, and in this show shares his unique and powerful thoughts of a life well-lived to the very last breath. So for starters, what exactly does it mean to die well? Despite the archetypal theme of going out in a blaze of glory, is that reasonable--or even possible? Why are such themes in stories like Gran Torino and Breaking Bad so incredibly fascinating and alluring to us as men? Is it necessarily true that we die alone, or can others around us contribute to a life well ended? What are the powerful and perhaps unexpected factors that present themselves when we know we have a limited time left? How can our minds play tricks on us in devious ways as we fantasize about our own deaths? Is that even healthy? Did Tim McGraw get it right when he exhorted us to 'live like we're dying'? We'll even tackle perhaps the scariest question of all on this subject...how to die well if your body or even your mind betrays you in old age. John Donne may have noted centuries ago that the bell will toll for thee, but he also penned 'death be not proud'. In the stunning conclusion to this particularly unforgettable and powerful episode, will spell out exactly what that means. Make the most of the one life we're given and invite the greatest woman you've ever met to join you. Talk to me for free when you get on my schedule at https://mountaintoppodcast.com
