The farmer is snoozing on the hay in his barn, surrounded by his dozy animals, when the fly buzzing about lands on his nose! Of course he sneezes, which sets off a long chain of consequences, until finally the terrified donkey panics! It has been compared to the traditional rhyme, The House That Jack Built, and has the same satisfying cause and result domino effect!

Cultural Writing. Poetry. This book explores our complicated interactions with the images, and memories of death. The book includes photographs, artwork and texts by professional and non-professional artists and touches on aspects of the very substance and frailty of human life as it passes while exploring both the diversity as well as the common threads in our experiences of death. "Todd Herman has done a wonderful job with this subject. The book will spark a dialogue about issues that are too often avoided" -- Elizabeth Westrate, Producer and Director of A Family Undertaking.

What's in name? As a matter of fact, fate, and/or faith, the genesis of same is often more convoluted than one might imagine. For example, my family nickname "Bim" is a perversion of my great grandmother's maiden name, Bevan. It was that family name my mother received as a middle name from her English immigrant father, Thomas Gleaves. Mother liked it. In fact, she adored it as later events would validate.

This book, like life, is brief. It is a thinking person's condolence card; a speaker's and writer's reference on a subject that sometimes stymies, sometimes inspires the most loquacious; and a counterpoint to nearly every other book about death. In Passing samples a wide range of emotions from the witty to the grim. Some of the quotes, such as Dorothy Parker's sarcastic response to the death of Calvin Coolidge ("How could they tell?"), are justly famous, while others — Philip Larkin's world-weary "Death is no different whined at than withstood" — are lesser-known gems. For some, the end inspires heady poetry, witness Rita Mae Brown's "The human animal dances wildest on the edge of the grave." H. L. Mencken showed grudging admiration when he said, "Of all escape mechanisms, death is the most efficient." This book offers perspective on the literally life-changing event that few welcome but all must endure.

Poems with a spiritual dimension from Iona Community member Joy Mead. They come from the beauty of the glimpsed moment ... a precious jewel held for a short time amid the pain and sorrow of the world, then let go into the bigger picture ... The beauty is what we remember, what gives the moment its significance.
