TNP24: Grieving for Susan + Civilization with Michael Phillips

16 minutes

This week's episode is a tender portrait of loss, destruction and the pain of living in our times. 

 I have a very special friendship with Michael; a kinship and delight in our conversations, a warmth and joy in his presence that lifts my spirits. I love his lyrical way of communicating. I love how he surprises me - one moment a poetic rumination, the next a pragmatic shrug. I usually need lots of kleenex for our conversations. He just has a way of speaking to the human condition in a way that opens and soothes my soul. I hope you enjoy sharing in this small portion of one of our recent talks.

By the way, the following quote (which I sort of bastardize  in the show) is from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone:

"After all, to the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure."
