Just bury me in the backyard
: The Washington Post reports a trend in home funerals.
Sure enough, you can buy coffins on eBay.
How very Victorian.
This is great, though. Death is the last thing that should be industrialized, commercialized, monetized, super-sized.
You can get your coffin at Costco, too, by the way. And at strip-center discount stores.
As for me, give me a pine box and some hungry earthworms.
jeff, do you get any sleep or are you always this frenetic?
My friend Nancy Rommelmann wrote an incredible piece about this, often referred to as the alt-death movement, back in February for the LA Times Magazine. Very worthwhile read.
You can still donate your body to science, if it’s not too far gone. Although there’s some body of opinion that burial is a way to preserve at least some green space.
You can buy anything on EBay. Except guns.
