    I like your idea of wearing mourning clothes. I wonder what they might look like in our modern era? And where could we torch them when it was time to move on?

      Hi Alison. I’ve been pondering those questions myself. It might be a great idea for a new business. We could make the mourning clothes to order depending on the desired style and offer the outfits in three colors: ebony, midnight, or charcoal. Included in the price could be membership in a support group, a bundle of kindling, and access to a fire pit out back behind the retail store. We could call it ‘Modern Mourning Solutions.’ Anyone want to run with it? 🙂

        Too funny! But, seriously, we need something like this. I just don’t think there’s much of a market for it. Maybe you should buy the domain name, though. Just in case! 🙂

    What beautiful points you’ve made Salina! I agree completely with what you have said. It just seems there are so many distractions in our culture today that it takes a concerted effort to focus in on and pay homage to that which is really truly important. Thank you once again for your thought provoking observations!

      Yes, Annie, I think you are right about there being so many distractions in our culture today. It seems odd, though. You would think with all our modern conveniences we would have more time for what is really important. But, somehow, we don’t. We are too busy doing our own thing to invest in “community.” Perhaps that’s because we don’t think we need each other to survive like we did in past generations. Yet, we absolutely do! ~ Salina
