Life and everything else

The New York Times ran this obit for poet, writer and feminist Adrienne Rich.

The Hindu ran this.

Both really nice but somehow the first seems to capture her better, almost like the writer really loved and admired both her and her work. Maybe it’s just because I read the NYT one first. Maybe it’s because I had struggled with writing my first obit just a few days  earlier and appreciated how important it is to capture the life and not just the achievements.
