Halloween. I don’t get the fascination. ” Christmas ” lights in purple and orange, tacky decorations and even tackier costumes all based on the annual preoccupation with death and dying and all things “spooky”. The Dia de los Muertos is something else completely…honoring and celebrating the lives of those who have passed and staring death straight in the face. I’m all for that. It wouldn’t hurt to have an exit strategy in place before it’s your turn to shuffle off and save yourself from being interred in a location of someone elses choosing in a recepticle that is, well, lacking. A little preplanning can insure your artful departure.
A couple of simplequietmodern options to consider to put the final puntuation on a life well lived:
Tom Kundig’s ” Final Turn” blackened steel funerary urn http://lundgrenmonuments.com
Space burial via Conastoga: http://www.celestis.com/conestogaFlight.asp
