[…] Duane Michals is preparing for his own death. He will soon turn 88 and feels overwhelmed by the human condition. He lost a friend of 57 years four years ago and saw him through his death from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. After this, Michals began preparing for his own inevitable demise. He has squared away all the business components of death, including paying for his cremation up front. Michals believes that one should bring the same curiosity to death as to life.
