Quote of the day

"Death, Iwata reflected over his coffee, must be like falling into the greatest unconditional love you can imagine.

"'Think about a time when you felt love, or in love. The feeling consumes you and you’re floating on a cloud. Then double that and you’re bursting. Multiply it by 10 times and you can’t contain it. Multiply it infinitely – that’s God,' he said."

— From Effie Caldarola's interview with Ed Iwata, an Anchorage, Alaska, volunteer for No One Dies Alone who visits dying hospital patients who have no friends and family. I had the great pleasure of meeting him this afternoon.
