Lisa was interviewed on ABC.FM January 13 about her fascinating book. Humorous illustrations add to this wonderful approach to a much avoided subject. The after death action plan.
While no one really wants to talk about death, it can actually be pretty interesting.
Are GPS coordinates really the only way family members can find you if you’re buried in a bush cemetery?
What is the most common object put into coffins by loved ones?
And what happens to your emails or your Facebook account when you die?
Sure, your loved ones will be sad when you pass away but there are things you can do to make it a bit easier for them. The Bottom Drawer Book is your after death action plan. Your ideas, plans, and your life’s reflections will sit quietly in its pages until they’re needed. Then, when you go, there’ll be no family squabbling over how much to spend on your casket, where you’ll be buried, who’ll tell stories at your funeral, what beer will be served at the wake, or which footy jumper you’ll be buried in. The Bottom Drawer Book contains lots of practical information. Its brightly coloured illustrations and humorous text encourage thought and understanding of a topic that doesn’t have to be dark or confronting.
The Book will be a work in progress because your wishes will evolve and change over time. You’ll smudge food on it, you’ll procrastinate, and you’ll doodle – and that’s okay. It is your Book after all.http://thebottomdrawerbook.com.au/
