Another Year Adios, Gearing Up for the Ultimate Adventure...

Disclosure: Babushka wrote this for the Enero/January 2020 edition of Conexion. Si, running Cubantime, pero if you read the last post about Resolutions/CubanChinese New Year, ya se dan cuenta that BB is right on time.  😉

Hola Hola Hola Beautifuls!

Another year over. Wow and Woah. The years keep getting faster and faster don’t they? Were there things you had meant to do, but couldn’t/didnt find the time? Now is the chance to reflect and resolve. Life is made up of many meaningful, lasting moments, and it’s up to us to facilitar them. And when she speaks of  life, BB must include the tema of death, a subject to approach with open eyes and open hearts. 

Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows. ~Michael Landon

Si, BB knows que estan saying, “Babushka that’s a heavy subject to start the year with.” Heavy pero inevitable Beautifuls. Y’all know the dicho, “The only thing certain in life are death and taxes.”  We deal with taxes every year, so this year let us deal with la muerte. Actualmente it’s not death so much we need to focus on, that we have no choice, pero how we can help others with our transition, that we can definitivamente have a say in.

For her parte, Babushka has chosen cremation. Many reasons led to this choice, years of thought and life lessons took BB there. Visions of a funeral and burial, a lonely grave, or loved ones bringing flores yearly on BB’s cumples out of a sense of obligacion wasn’t wanted, what is wanted is a sense of homecoming, to return to la tierra, a “oneness” with all. To facilitate this return, BB trusted the Neptune Society with their various options. Hasta their name is calming and what Babushka looked for. Burial at sea, biodegradeable urn, back to Mother Earth, ESO!!  That called to Babushka. Also knowing the burden and many decisions that have to be addressed in a person’s passing would be done and tended by profesionales, the detalles and cost already taken care of, that definitely called to BB. The title of Groovy Grandma would have tarnished if the last thing done for The Grands was making them run for monies during their mourning. 

So relieved and so impressed with the Neptune Society, Babushka signed up Sweetie and BIL tambien! No waiting for the inevitable to overcome us, we are ready and at peace with our passing. Como costumbre, BB is contrario to the norm, as it seems that most preneeds are purchased by Anglos in their mid to late 60s. De vera mi gente, let’s change that, porque we can and we should. So convinced of this is Babushka, that she is now a preneed advisor for the Neptune Society, and should you live in Florida or Georgia feel free to contact me for más informacion.


Of course each one of us has to make our own choices and share them with loved ones.
Por favor, do it now instead of luego. Because the years pass so quickly, and so too do we.

Feliz Año Nuevo a todos.
