The Picturing Death Project, a reflective, participatory project
The Picturing Death Project Journal Entries from 1999-2003
The simple but effective structure for the Picturing Death Project, a cast glass table, four chairs, and journals, provide a structure for journal writing with 4 questions that help participants examine how we will choose to live with the knowledge that death is inevitable. Currently, the project table, chairs and journals reside at Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan in Kalamazoo. http://www.hospiceswmi.org

Hope to be able to come back on assignment to help folks.
