Bonus Wordle “Dead Reckoning Take 2”

Bonus Dead Reckoning

dead reckoning

n. to find yourself bothered by someone’s death more than you would have expected, as if you assumed they would always be part of the landscape, like a lighthouse you could pass by for years until the night it suddenly goes dark, leaving you with one less landmark to navigate by—still able to find your bearings, but feeling all that much more adrift.


I realized I had left off this definition of dead reckoning in a previous wordle and decided to focus on it this week in a light of recent conversation I had with my therapist about death. For me death has always been extremely hard to process and I am often affected very strongly by death, even the death of celebrities that I do not personally know. I was very upset when I head about Alan Rickman’s death for example. Please if possible watch the talk below and incorporate your views on it in your post.
