the general thrust of my life lately has been identifying the things i've meant to do for forever and then actually doing them.
this has been an extravagantly glamorous process that has led to such outlandish adventures as riding horses and sitting in boats. and it is due to this extravagantly glamorous process that i am finally, FINALLY throwing myself into the only social issue to have ever truly engaged my heart: funeral reform.
glamour, people. glamour.
over the years, i've tried to become active in a number of totally hip, seemingly so much more important, sexier issues. human trafficking. hunger. recycling. literacy. women's reproductive freedom.
none of them stuck.
despite my best efforts, i have only ever been interested in funeral reform. and funeral reform is so not sexy. even though it encompasses sexy areas like ecology, politics, poverty and corruption, in the end it's just plain ghoulish.
so yeah. that's me in a nutshell.
funeral reform and dead first ladies.
truly, it is a wonder i have any friends.
