consumerism even in death

so I was thinking about funerals, and all the trappings that go along with them.I think funeral homes pray on the grieving family's distress...don't worry we'll take care of everything...and then a huge bill at the end.  Why not make informed choices now and save your family the stress later.  Is it really necessary to go in debt 10-20 thousand dollars to bury a loved one. I think not. Embalming is not required . so you can save there. and if you build a pine box you can bury your loved one for cheap, and in a way that is environmentally friendly. Think about all those millions of lead lined coffins that will never decompose. just filling up space in the earth where green things could grow. Why not go green with our dead. save money and save the earth's a win win . I kinda like the idea of decomposing into a tree or flower garden . it has a beautiful symmetry to it.

go here for some interesting food for thought.

I have been sorely neglecting this blog. I need to make space and time to write . I feel better when I can just let it flow. I will have to make a conscious effort to blog at least once a week.
