Old sailors still tell the story of Fidlers Green. When a holy sailor is dead at sea, his crew would keep him safe and bring him to land for a funeral. While The Sea Devil Davy Jones, waits at the bottom of the ocean for sailors who are thrown overboard.

I want to go to Fidlers Green, but the modern Enlightenment Thinkers don't leave it as an option. In the modern world we make sure we reach the afterlife, and don't leave any way for our corpses to be resurected back into the eco-system.

When a holy man dies, or a priest with true faith they always choose cremation. Their bodies turn to smoke and ashes, and their spirit is released as a brilliant flame of light, the energy emmanating out into the solar system for all eternity, behaving as a quantum field of spiritual joy.

And when a man who has lost his fait dies, they go to the graveyard. Bodies are preserved and berried deep bellow the top-soil. Where eventually they are fossilized. The person doesn't have a chance to return again as a living being, unless their spirits are brought out of their bodies again. Geologists claim today, that even in the depths of the earth and in the stones, their still is life, and even on other planets. So perhaps eventually when the time is right these nano-organisms would evolve out of the dreamworld and return again to earth.

But I want to go to fiddlers green, and be berried in the butterfly field. A shallow grave, where I can return to nature. I don't believe in the enlightenment, and because I can't find a graveyard to suit me. I think I will jump down into the abyss, and hopefully reach the bottom of the sea.

I think I would like to be straw-berried or maybe blue-berried to death.

As Hannibal Lechter said, "Don't mind if I do."
I asked the boy beneath the pines.
He said, "The master's gone alone herb picking,
somewhere on the mount,
cloud hidden,
whereabouts unknown."

A friend of mine was visiting Billy McComb, back when he still lived in England. He put his cup of tea on the table, next to a large vase. Billy asked him, "Have you ever met Al Koran?"

My friend replied, "No."

Billy said, "That's Al, in that urn, there."

Just as your friend was putting a teaspoon of "sugar" into the the tea, right ?

Seriously though, why would Billy McComb have Al Koran's ashes ? Didn't the guy have family ? (Other than the castle ?) Or was there a blood or marriage relation there ?
(Shows how much I know about the ol' greats )

BTW, that gives me an (unoriginal I'm sure) idea for the "ashes on the arm" trick.

Especially if you take the ashes from a small container that contains a charred finger bone. ***, I am starting to sound like Myst.
