Deathcember, DIâ€™s annual rumination on mortality and the end of things, comes to the end of its black road for 2011 with an assortment that reminds us that thereâ€™s lots of ways to die and not all of them end with us in the ground. We might die a little on a stage or in a bed next to someone who used to make us feel alive. Yes, we might go down on a battlefield or maybe, more insidiously, just fade away like a photograph left in the sun. However it happens it happens to us all, so weâ€™d best get on with the business of living while weâ€™ve got the time and breath.
