DescriptionObit an online magazine launched in 2007 to examine life death and the transitions in between isn’t as dark as you might initially think. “What death can mean to the living and what living may have meant to the dead” reads a tagline on its masthead. “Death is only half the story. Obit is about life…” reads another. Far more than just an outlet for obituaries—although it has many of those as well—the site is an eclectic collection of essays on change.
