The End

One of my favourite pages in Macleans magazine was the last one called The End. It featured the obituary of an interesting Canadian, not a famous Canadian, but one who had lived their life in a special way.  Macleans will no longer publish the beloved feature. 

As a kind of farewell for The End writer Michael Friscolanti read twelve years worth of obituaries and  made a  list of three life lessons gleaned  from other peoples’ lives. 

  1. Find love.  It is life’s greatest privilege and reward.

  2. Be yourself.  Follow your own path.

  3. Don’t feel sorry for yourself.

Good advice from people who lived their legacy.
