I have been catching up on my reading, and I chanced to read that Lia Lee died in Sacramento at the end of August. A terribly, terribly sad story, one that is hard to describe? Miss Lee lived on, after a terrifying seizure, much longer than many live in a vegetative state. At least she is free now, whatever lays beyond.
If you haven’t read Anne Fadiman’s The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, I highly recommend it. Truly a life-changing book.
