The Beaten Path
With Jack Armistead
I have always
believed in reincarnation and now I have found a
way to be reincarnated. When the time comes.
I have learned recently that I can come back as
a tree in another life.
Yes, a tree.
My first choice would be to come back as a pelican
so I could fly and fish freely over the Atlantic
Ocean and the beautiful Chesapeake Bay.
But I will be perfectly content to become a tree
and grow and blow in the wind in my new life.
There are at least three companies that will turn
cremains into a tree.
I get this information from Andrew Amelinckx, a
writer for Modern Farmer Magazine.
In an article last year he informed readers that
for people who choose cremation, several companies
have created biodegradable urns that, when combined
with specific soil mixtures, use cremains to help
grow a tree.
One such company is Bios Urn and Incube, a Spanish
company that wants to Convert cemeteries into
forests. The Bios Incube pairs with the companys
existing biodegradable urn and tree-growing kit
to allow you to grow a seedling in your home, rather
than find a burial spot.
They have created the worlds first biodegradable
urn designed to convert you into a tree after life.
Wow! Now I must do some serious research to see
what kind of tree that I would like to be. I encourage
you to Be All the Tree That You Can Be.
I dont think the famous California Redwood
is one of the choices. But the company listed above
does offer you a choice of five types of trees including
maple, pine, ash, gingko, and beech.
We could all become crepe myrtles around here. Look!
Theres Jack! Hes losing his bark and
his flowers are messy.
If you have always believed in reincarnation, now
there is a way. At last. I can be a Pomegranate
tree. Need some seeds?
