General - Death/Funeral - sway in the cloud blur  
Medium: General
Fandom: n/a
Subject: Death/My funeral/becoming one with nature/second childhood
Title: sway in the cloud blur
Warnings: None
Notes: Okay, this may be totally morbid, but these are the songs I would like played at my funeral, or just remind me of passing away in general. I don't know if this mix is a result of me being morose (like, I totally do that thing mentioned in When Harry Met Sally, reading the last page of a book first), or if it's my having to plan everything. I can't be the only one who thinks about this kind of thing. I know that I want to be cremated. And if I am rich by the time I die, I would like my ashes shot into deep space (seriously, that shit is fucking expensive).

But parts of this mix can be applied to some less dark themes. Some songs can be heard as going through a second childhood, rather playful and free. I don't know. I sometimes equate death with the soul being free, and envision a soul running and frolicking. Some songs can be listened to when trying to get closer to nature, or when you ponder how you are part of something much larger than yourself. That everyone and all our lives are just tiny microcosms in this humongous universe. I guess that just another thing that I think could happen when we die, we become one with The Force, are pure energy.

I guess all these different elements are included in this mix, because when I think about dying I ultimately think about life. And this bright, vibrant montage of images and scenes flash in my mind like an intense kaleidoscope.

Don't worry. The next mix I plan on posting is a lot more fun and a lot less philosophical. :P

I am debating whether or not to do today's writer's block. If I attempt to answer it, it will probably turn into spam (like it usually does)... How lazy do I feel? XP

I have another suggestion for you, the song I'd maybe like someone to play at my funeral.

Within Temptation - Farewell.

I think the song has the perfect text for consolation...

I have my funeral planned out. What readings, what music, etc. I planned it after going to Elisa's funeral so people wouldn't have to guess what to do.
