Witnessing, death and memory - Social media is old enough now that it’s had to incorporate the reality of death: personal profiles are turned into memorial sites; recordings serve as a last avenue for goodbyes and images increasingly make us a witness to death itself.

Death by Elegy - Author Dick Gross has written about what he regards as the blockbuster of all elegies. It's called 'Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard', and was written over 250 years ago in Britain by Thomas Gray, a man who was the sole surviving child of a family of twelve children, who grew up in a village where the burial ground was at the centre of village life, and where every death had meaning for the community as a whole.

Whenever I prepare for a journey I prepare as though for death - Katherine Mansfield
