have you see this lady? i love her little videos! i was always a morbid kid, grew into a morose teenager, grew further into a weirdo grown-up and did things like take classes called "death and dying" and became fascinated with stuff like victorian mourning jewelry, real bone china, and cemetery laws. so yes, i love this.
watching these videos, reading her blog, makes me want to write a few of my own stories. i think in general americans don't speak of death enough, we try to avoid talking about it, mentioning it, thinking about it, and end up totally unprepared for it and devastated when it happens to us. which is ironic, seeing as it happens to all of us. it's the only thing we all have in common, besides birth. why not consider it on occasion?
