I love reading obituaries.
Not because I am happy to learn that someone died.
But because it’s an entire epic novel squeezed into miniature, tracing life from birth to death.
It’s Homer’s Odyssey compressed down to the time it takes to read a haiku.
Is this morbid fascination? I don’t think so.
For one instant, in a few, compact lines, we learn that someone’s ordinary life wasn’t so ordinary.
Read between the lines.
We have more in common with the dead than you’d think.
