An Elegant Way to Die

Never thought I would one day post about “death”, but this mausoleum was too interesting of a concept not to write about.

Even though when I depart I could care less where it happens, I am sure the person taking care of arrangements would enjoy such a setting. It is somber and austere and befitting of the mood, unless those left behind are feeling more celebratory.

The first image is just beautiful, the scale of it all really. The lit marble is exactly what it looks like at the Cathedral of the Christ of Light in Oakland and when you are inside, it feels strangely uplifting. Very cool post Jimmy.
