I remember running from someone I think was a bishop who looked vaguely like James Mason; I was trying to meet up with my mother (who didn't know about the danger) and saving a pretty young damsel in a flowing white nightgown whom I knew in the dream but have no clue who was in real life. I had driven through an indoor mall where there was a lot of nifty Japanese/Asian stuff I wanted to buy, but Mom was standing in line for sushi and I knew she wouldn't want any, so I told her to meet me, and that's when I had to save the girl. We went through a gate and there was a lot of mud. I kinda remember it in sequence. And then I woke up in a puddle of drool on my pillow. Ew.




I think I want that "be a tree" cremation thing that was in cornerofmadness's journal today. That seems about right. Talk about living forever!


I've been more than pleasantly surprised at how quickly my little team of researchers is doing. We rock, totally.

I've seen that "be a tree" thing, too, and thought about how that might be nice. There's also that "be a coral reef" thing, where they take your ashes and mix it in with concrete that they form into those blocks that help seed coral reefs.

I just know I don't want to do that box in the ground thing.

Much as my ego would love a granite monument to ME, the Great and Wonderful, being a tree or seeding a coral reef sounds much better for everyone involved. (Especially the Earth!)

EXACTLY. I'd rather have someone pay a visit to my corporeal body's resting place in a forest or scuba diving instead of some place surrounded by other dead people's buried loved ones.

I'm one of those people who believes that after death, the body is just a body, and the soul - that which makes me me - is already departed. I'm also one of those people who is sensitive to spirits (I've seen and felt ghosts, and had visits by family members from beyond in dreams), graveyards FREAK ME OUT. I'd rather send my family somewhere not surrounded by others' deaths, personally.

I believe in ghosts, too; or something on a plane we can't always see but can frequently sense (if you've ever walked around in Gettysburg, you know the feeling -- I got it in the Bird Cage Theatre in Tombstone, too).

But I love graveyards -- there's just something that's fascinating there; uplifting as well as sad, these people who lived and died long before I was anyone, some before my parents or grandparents existed--part of my fascination with history, I suspect.

i have also thought about the coral reef thing but there is some research suggesting it is not good for the eco system (they're probably using cheap crap to make the reef) But it would be a cool thing too.

neat dream

Probably depends on who does the reef seeding; I saw a show on Discovery where there were people complaining about the stuff being used, but it turned out it WAS good, and the real reefs were coming back around the artificial pieces. It was a pretty interesting show.

yeah this was in one of the magazines the environmental science prof gets (not really available to the gen. public) but I forget what was wrong with the fake reef

I should see if there's any articles in Scientific American.

At least the bishop was reasonably good-looking and had a sultry voice, then. ;-)

I definitely want to be plant fertilizer of some kind. I want my minerals to go back to the land.

It was very weird. I wish I could remember details like you can.

What a cool headstone. So elaborate. And kudos to you and your researchers.

We're pretty rockin'. And our new supervisor is going to be out of the office next week, and pretty much put me in charge while he's out. I think I'm liking this new stuff!
