You're reading this so you know already something of my story and that soon I shall pass on. My wish is to have a natural burial at Fremantle Cemetery, Western Australia, and I've made some preliminary arrangements. A natural burial involves no embalming, chemicals, synthetic materials and so on - in short, I would like to become compost.
There's been so much heart and kindness poured my way of late as I share my journey with friends old and new, and even complete strangers have dropped by my blog to post loving notes of well-wishing and spirit. Many have asked how they could help, or expressed that they wished they could do at least something. Well, if you know me you'll know I'm a very very lucky man but not one ever blessed much with money. If you can, please help my wife Meeta and I with the cost of my natural burial. I'd really, sincerely appreciate it. And even if you can't, your thoughts and wishes are as gold to me anyway.
I will keep sharing my story as I go, as best I can, as a gift back to life (or spirit, or whatever) as many people seem to find something deep in themselves following the journey of one facing this road consciously, as openly as possible, warts and all. So consider telling your friends about my blog (and this request, if you like) because I have found you never know what touches someone, and we all need peace to look at our own ends, surely. Plus, sometimes it's funny. http://entropyandlight.blogspot.com/
