Gosh, Eric, I just discovered your blog, and this is the first thing I read. I really hope you're very much OK now, and you're taking it easy. Please keep us posted -- I hope the TIA incident didn't leave any after-effects behind. My grandmother had one, when I was too little to understand what had happened.

Eric Schliesser

Thank you for you concern. It's been a while now, and there seem to be no noticeable effects.. I feel very fine.

Heidi Howkins Lockwood

Very glad to hear there have been no noticeable effects or recurrences! I, too, am just starting to read the blog, and clicked on "philosophy of death" in the category cloud because I'm teaching a related introductory undergraduate course (Phi 242: Death and the Meaning of Life) this semester. It's a philosophy course, but also a general education course that falls into a category called "creative drive," along with art and music and so forth. (Students are given the challenge of coming up with a semester-long creative project which constitutes a response to the topics in the course, in a medium of their choice, with iterative reflection on the choice of medium and the content, and an artist's statement explaining the link to the course content.) Anyhow, I'm on the hunt for non-standard artifacts dealing with the phenomenology of confronting our mortality and/or dying (e.g., Simone de Beauvoir's _A Very Easy Death_), but didn't expect to find one here!
