About the Blog

‘Carpe That Diem’ is a tragically bilingual portmanteau phrase gracelessly stolen from a dear friend and motivator.

The blog Carpe That Diem is dedicated to death positivity. This is a space for thoughtful contemplation on death, dying, disability, illness, health, sexuality, gender, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in spite of all of the above.
