Assignment #51
Describe what to do with your body when you die.

When I die, I would like to be buried on a grassy hill overlooking the ocean. I would like for people to celebrate my life in a playful way. I loved how Heath Ledger's friends swam in the ocean to celebrate his life when he died. I want people to do things like this. Nothing specific really...just whatever the group feels inspired to do to honor my life. Send out peaceful messages in bottles in my memory. I would like hippie music such as the Beatles played at my funeral. I would love for there to be a fun slide show highlighting the good stuff in my life, with great music in the background. I think it would be great if everyone wore bright shades of BLUE to my funeral. It's my favorite color...I never was a big fan of black. I would like to be buried wearing a peace sign. A necklace, a shirt...something. It's my favorite symbol. Also...I wanna be buried wearing bright blue. Again- favorite color. When you visit my grave, bring BRIGHT flowers. No red roses, please. I'm talking sunflowers, wildflowers. Get creative! Most of all...celebrate. Death is a blessing in disguise, and it's totally natural. As long as this body can be near the ocean...all is well. :)
