With any luck I'll be dead once they decide what to do with my remains, so I really don't care. I guess it comes from having spent the last few years in a country completely obsessed with death.

I also don't care what kind of music they play at the service, or if they just throw me on a dung heap.

Bet I'm the only one here who feels that way.

My 19th century family cemetary. I've wanted to be buried there since I was eight, and it still attracts me.

Either that, or I want to be buried on top of a hill with a gigantic weeping willow. Then I want a creepy neo-classical marble angel statue next to my grave site. I am a sucker for composition and drama.

I am quite old-fashioned at heart, really, and could never imagine being cremated. I'm only thinking from my own standpoint here, but if someone I had loved died, I'd at least want to be able to visit their grave. So, likewise, I would do the same for those who might care if I die someday.


"He had lived through an age when men and women with energy and ruthlessness but without much ability or persistence excelled. And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time
