In this second and final part of my interview with death ritual photographer Klaus, we talk about food. That’s right! When the living come together, even for a funeral, food is often and important part of that ritual.
Danish photographer Klaus Bo chronicles death rituals from around the world, including Greenland, Haiti, Madagascar, Ghana, India, Indonesia and Nepal. I was so absorbed by tales of Haitian voodoo rituals, chicken caskets from Ghana, and Indonesian funeral feasts that I had to break this interview into two parts!
Steve Appleton chased his dream down to Mexico, where he runs an online e-bike store from his laptop. You’ll hear how he did it, and how an unexpected twist in life’s curvy road motivated him to keep going.

Learn from Rita Wilkins, the “Downsizing Designer,” how clutter might be getting in the way of your dreams.
