All about my mother: 'It's amazing what the living expect of the dying' - The Guardian

eople who weren’t there like to say that my mother died at home surrounded by loving family. This is technically true, though it was just my brother and me and he was looking at Facebook and I was reading a profile of Hillary Clinton in the December 2009 issue of Vogue. A hospice nurse had been over a few hours earlier and said my mother was “very imminent”. Strangely, I hadn’t noticed it despite listening for the past several weeks (months earlier, when her death sentence had been officially handed down but she was still very much alive, my mother had casually mentioned that she’d noticed this... My brother got off the couch and called her name, too. Then I said, “Is that it. ”. That was it. I found suddenly that I wasn’t quite sure how to identify a dead person – it didn’t occur to me in that moment that not breathing was a sure sign – so I picked up her hand. I’d read about this in the death books – Final Gifts, Nearing Death Awareness, The Needs of the Dying – that I’d devoured over the last few months. Medically speaking, I’d found these books to be extremely accurate about how things progressed, but some put a lot of emphasis on birds landing on windowsills at the moment of death or people opening their eyes at the last minute and making amends...

Lee: Why was cuckoo bird chosen to mark time in a clock? - LubbockOnline.com

Recently I woke up thinking about, of all things, cuckoo clocks. He wanted a cuckoo clock because our dad loved wristwatches and clocks, tinkered with them as a hobby and repaired a number of broken timepieces for friends. Recently I woke up thinking about, of all things, cuckoo clocks. I saw many of the legendary clocks when I visited Germany four months ago and remembered the one my parents bought for my brother's birthday when he was just 5 years old. He wanted a cuckoo clock because our dad loved wristwatches and clocks, tinkered with them as a hobby and repaired a number of broken timepieces for friends. Our cuckoo clock hung in the dining room for a number of years when we were growing up. Most of the time the little door latch was left unlocked allowing the bird to pop out and cuckoo on the hour and half-hour, but at other times it became a bit... I wondered why the cuckoo was selected to tell the time on a clock, and not another species of bird. The cuckoo in the clocks is said to mimic the call of the cuckoo bird, but I still didn't know why that particular bird was selected to adorn the clock that became so popular.
