I’ve spent the last two and a half months in Philadelphia – helping my Dad transition from living totally on his own to having someone come into his home daily to help out with errands, cooking, etc. I listened to him speak more about death on this trip than I have my entire life time.
So when I received a reminder about screening a documentary on green burial late last week, my first reaction was ‘Really? I’m absolutely exhausted, am jammed up with work, and do I really want to watch a documentary on death?’
Something told me to make the time to view it. And boy am I glad I did. I don’t remember ever so highly recommending a documentary. A Will for the Woods is a powerful testimonial for why you should seriously consider green burial.
I urge you to watch this short snippet and see when it will be coming to a theatre near you. And if it isn’t, think about hosting a viewing in your home. It has the power to change the way you view death and your connection to nature.
