The Beginning and More Links

The idea for this blog was inspired due to my dad's death this summer and the subsequent writing of living wills, health directives, etc. for my own...
I have done a bit of body disposal research and will be working on a cemetery project, which will be documented.

Bring back crematoriums and cemeteries to San Francisco

Isn't it time we change SF Law and bring burials and cremation back to the City. With new advances in composting methods, and reusing the energy from crematoriums, SF should revamp their policies.

In California, the coffin must be covered by a minimum of 18 inches of dirt and turf, with new advances in compost technology... perhaps these requirements will change, this will mean more people could be buried per cubic foot.

SF should change their laws to allow for burial in the city. Not only would it create spaces for remembrance and reflection, it would also offer needed monetary resources for art, garden, landscape, and people.

What are we waiting for?
