This Afterword was written on the seventh anniversary of my nephew’s death. It concisely summarizes the life lessons embedded in each chapter of this book. Addressed to the memory of my nephew, this brief writing details how the practices of feeling support and connection with others can keep us engaged with living even as we vacillate between states of fall and recovery, knowing and not knowing, and the discovery of new, previously unimaginable, pathways. Although it was not written exclusively for him or about him, John Christian’s struggles wove their way through each chapter of How to Land: Finding Ground in an Unstable World.
