A Redding reflection on life

Saturday we attended the service for fellow Realtor and friend Larry Mays, along with a few hundred others in Redding. He’d suffered a terminal illness for quite some time and dealt with it all amazingly. He really was an idol. A lot of people suffer from severe end-of-life anxiety and yet this didn’t seem to affect Larry. He stayed the same happy person he always was. He puts this down to microdosing magic mushrooms. A study undertaken by Johns Hopkins researchers on a group of people suffering from cancer-related anxiety or depression showed that they experienced significant relief for up to six months from a single large dose of psilocybin. You can find out more about this at https://www.mushroomz.ca/2015/11/19/welcome-to-flatsome/. Larry put his time left to good use and prepared a video, speaking as though from beyond the veil to those gathered. It made for a reflective weekend. Ultimately, we all have this terminal illness called life.

What would you say in your video to those gathered to celebrate your life?

It was a beautiful service. He lived a full life and has seventeen great grandchildren. I tell myself I should not be sad to see him go. Instead, I should be happy that I met him.

But I was sad.

Reflection, it’s Really Redding.
