cremation for me... *LINK*
I've wandered to and fro all my life...went here, went there as I pleased pretty much.
As a roamer I find the thought of being stuffed in a little box and then cramming that into a hole in the ground for an eternity to be somewhat confining. Cremation was the answer for me. I flung my Dad's ashes out of a Cessna at 10k feet...sounds good to me except I want to pollute an area in TX.
I thought I had found a third possibility:
"Does ending your life’s journey in a cramped coffin turn you off? Want to keep being productive? Remain a vital part of the scenery? Stay tuned.
Pushing up daisies – or veggies if you’re into that – may be the thing in Washington State as legislators seek to change the law about composting human remains. That’s right. If dead livestock can be turned into compost, why not people?
We’re not talking “Soylent Green.” Not yet.
“Recomposition involves placing bodies in a vessel and hastening their decomposition into a nutrient-dense soil that can then be returned to families,” Wired says. “The aim is a less expensive way of dealing with human remains that is better for the environment than burial, which can leach chemicals into the ground, or cremation, which releases earth-warming carbon dioxide.”"
UNTIL, they had to go and say this..."...or cremation, which releases earth-warming carbon dioxide.”
Well hell...I guess I'll have to stick to cremation just so I can poke the greenies in the eye one last time...on my way out.
