As we are all well aware, the ant is the superlative species on earth.
I'm not truly certain how the web of life functions or how my existence
will manifest itself after death. However, I do know that humankind is
not my choice for life after the grave. Therefore, I have chosen
a superior animal to entrust my person at the time of my demise.
My concept is to be cremated, then to have my ashes mixed with a suitable
soil and placed into a large and elaborate ant habitat in the style of an oversized Ant Farm®. By becoming part of
the ants' ecosystem, I am returning to the world as an essential,
meaningful, and functioning aspect of life.
My interests have always lain with the world of
biology. I have a very pragmatic world view. Ashes to ashes, dust to
dust speaks to me as the way the world truly is. I was a major in
environmental studies and the life sciences at UC Berkeley. I spend a lot
of time outdoors, hiking and gardening, and being with my animals. I
write poetry to express my soul. I earn my living by selling homes to
people. I had at one time wanted to be a scientist, but although the
theory and concepts are interesting, the day to day world of being inside
of laboratories, and experimenting on animals did not appeal to me.
