Now, this isn't a morbid topic, and as far as I know, I am not leaving anytime soon; BUT, I am in the last part of my life and am trying to have my earthly shit together so it isn't a burden on anyone. and lately have been to some funerals that have totally pissed me off. If you think about it, they are usually planned by family and/or friends that are at the height of grieving and the decisions and plans have to be done in 3-4 days. I just don't think that is fair to the people I love, and being a "control freak" I risk having some kind of ceremony that doesn't really reflect the true me. so, I am making a list of all the songs I want played (and hopefully will get them all complied on a CD). Songs of the 60's, early 70's, current artists, garage bands, and some "good ole religion" songs I love. Songs that promote peace, love, unity and celebration. The passing on celebration will need to be held in a large auditorium if it is winter or outside in a park or field (please Lord) if it is summer. There will be dancing, Nag Champa and Potcouli burning. Hopefully I also will have a video done telling all how much I love them and my life (the good and the bad cause it made me who I am). There will be "herb" in the pipes to be passed....it will be a time I can show all who I really was -some will be surprised. I am also hoping there will be funds available to fly in people I want to share in this celebration that are living in different corners of the country. There are people here that I would love to come, even if they don't know me because I don't post often and don't talk one on one with you....but I read here constantly and know many of your hearts and feel we are connected. Ok...so am I crazy (yes) but I am okay with that. peace!!!
