Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – Green Burial Council

My father died too suddenly for us to have put a green burial in place, but you can bet that this is smack dab in the middle of our radar screen for my mom (may she live many more healthy years).

Green Burial Council, you get one pingy-dingy! Thank you for your fascinating FAQ page, your incredibly important work caring for the dead, the living, and the environment, and for your compassion and passion for those of us (all of us) who must make decisions about our and our family members’ deathcare.

I’m a typewriter whompin’, card catalogue lovin’ white girl from back in the day, and I yearn for a time before the covers of trade paperbacks were all squidgy, so you can imagine that I don’t actually understand what a pingback is. I do know that it can in some way be part of spreading the love, and since that’s what I’m all about at The Total Femme… every Wednesday, I pay homage to the laughter, love, and inspiration to be had elsewhere online.

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”)
