Talking about Death is one of our biggest taboos. So I was delighted although a little surprised when someone recently told me about Death Cafes and pointed me to this article: Death Cafes Grow As Places To Discuss
There is even a Death Cafe website. I rather like their mission statement:
At Death Cafes people come together in a relaxed and safe setting to discuss death, drink tea and eat delicious cake.
The objective of Death Cafe is "To increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives".

In other words, in discussing death you may get to make more of your lives.
