Day 11: While searching the kitchen for inspiration…I came across a very brown banana. Bananas don’t last long…and this one was ripened far too soon. To stay with it a little longer, the other fruit in the bowl, naturally and comfortably, celebrated bananas short life with a home funeral…before giving him a green burial in the compost bin.
I’d like to thank Caitlyn Doughty and The Order of the Good Death for validating and normalizing my fascination with death. Their open, intelligent, and honest discussions around death and dying also really help alleviate some of my fears around my own mortality. If any of this interests and/or frightens you, I highly recommend checking out Caitlyns YouTube channel, Ask A Mortician.
