Awake Wake

Attending a dying friend’s celebratory and loving “Awake Wake Party” in Eureka, California.

The Idiot and Mike Armstrong discuss the meaning of death after Mike’s moving, meaningful and filled-to-capacity “Awake Wake Party” on the Pacific Ocean in Eureka, CA.
“It’s a real joy to tell people how much they mean to me and how much I love them before I die,” said Armstrong, who’s purchased a cardboard coffin and paid for his cremation. “And what a delight to hear their stories about what they think of me, what I mean to them and relive the things we did together before I become a pile of ashes.”
