You will hear thunder and remember me,
and think: she wanted storms…

I know it is coming, and I do not fear it, because I believe there is nothing on the other side of death to fear. I hope to be spared as much pain as possible on the approach path. I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state.

Roger Ebert

Just realized that I have been quoting this consistently for the past two years when confronted about my views on there not being an afterlife. Ebert was not only super influential to me in my early cinephile education but also in giving me the confidence to come-out Atheist. Just an overall stand-up man. I’ll miss seeing his words on a weekly basis.

An average of seventy-four species become extinct every day, which was one good reason but not the only one to hold someone’s hand.

The Hours

What happens when we die?
Virginia Woolfe:
What happens? We return to the place we came from
I don't remember where I came from
Virginia Woolfe:
Nor do I
When I’m lying in my bed I think about life and I think about death and neither one particularly appeals to me.

This urn will turn you into a tree after you die


You can choose what kind of tree you want to become


Idk I just find this beautiful 

just imagine cemeteries looking like this


a forest of living, changing, beautiful trees. I think a tombstone represents finality in death while a tree represents the continuation of life. It’s like you are living on symbolically through something greater than yourself. Each tree in a forest is a soul.

But I know she is coming close to the time where she will stop being a dog, and start instead to be part of everything. She’ll be in the wind, and in the soil, and the snow, and in me, wherever I go.
