From an email:

“This art installation is down the narrow Stronghold alley, overlooking the Glenwood cemetery (Micro Showcase, 21 Evarts St NE). Signs of Regret.”

If we were walking down a street that ends with our lives, what are the road signs we might wish to heed as we travel? –Brian Levy

Bronnie Ware is an Australian nurse who spent several years working in palliative care, caring for patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives. Ware writes of the phenomenal clarity of vision that people gain at the end of their lives, and how we might learn from their wisdom. “When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently,” she says, “common themes surfaced again and again.” She recorded their dying epiphanies in a book, Five Regrets of the Dying.

Installed at the Micro Showcase, overlooking the Glenwood Cemetery, in September 2016
