I’m 56 years old. I might have 20 or 30 years left, but I believe it’s more like 10 or 15. Regardless, since any of us could die at any time, I believe that it’s time for me to consider how I want to die. This is simply a practical matter for me, not a gruesome one. We should each have a living will, and we should be willing (and even eager) to discuss it. It is my choice to die a natural death, with dignity, but I have placed particular constraints on what I believe a natural death looks like. I believe that there are things we can do to promote dying in a healthy and sound way, and this kind of death looks much different to me than what many people choose. There are three aspects to my end-of-life strategy: spiritual, physical, and financial.
