ByHelen Schulman Nov. 23, 2018 I have Remember the 1998 film “Sliding Doors”? Gwyneth Paltrow rushes to catch a train in London after being fired from her job. In one universe, she makes the train and gets home early and finds her man in bed with another woman. In the other, she misses it, comes home to her boyfriend alone, and stays with him to her own detriment and despair. The big “What if?” What if I didn’t go to a magazine party in the fall of 1986, with my agent? What if I had not just partaken of the free wine and cheese and instead hobnobbed and made connections like I was supposed to? What if I … [Read more...] about Destined to Marry the Cute Bartender

We should be better at dying. That sounds judgmental, but it’s more akin to wishful thinking. While death is a certainty, it’s rarely a goal, so we tend to resist, to worry, to grasp at new treatments or old beliefs. But the emerging death doula movement offers another option: We can’t change the destination, but we can improve the journey.

My wife and I were enjoying a trip through Southeast Asia and, well, a temple tour and a couple of four-hand Cambodian massages later, we were on our way to becoming parents.Life felt full with one child, but we started to imagine what our son would do if something happened to us. Where would he live? Who would love him?I pictured him stranded, bearded and alone like Tom Hanks in “Cast Away.” No friends. No family. Just the cruel face of a volleyball staring back at him with eyes that constantly admit what we all know to be true but rarely say out loud: that we all die alone.So despite admonitions from articles that say you shouldn’t have a second child just to give your first child a sibling, we decided to give our first child a sibling.
