Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace. - Sylvia Plath in “Bell Jar”

I never thought of it like this but dammit I want to believe. Even if you don’t believe in the afterlife, there’s something rather wonderful to view your final resting place just like so. A lot more comforting than the possibility of hell or purgatory. I don’t know for sure what’s to come but these words give me a sense of calm.

Too bad I want to be cremated¬†and spread all around the world and be planted as a tree haha. Still, I think it applies :) I wonder if it’ll actually happen?
