    This is such a true statement — “But so far, in the research I know about, there is no evidence whatsoever that single people are more avoidant in their relationships, compared to coupled people.” By the way.I just learned by reading the following –According to legend Petit Jean was actually a young 18th century French woman. When she discovered that her fiance planned to explore the Louisiana Territory, she cut her hair, disguised herself as a boy and managed to find a position as a cabin boy. She survived the voyage and the expedition began their exploration. Once they had reached the area of the mountain, the young woman became ill, on her deathbed she revealed herself to her fiance, and was buried on the mountain, not under her own name, but under the name she had been known by on the ship “Little John”.

    This is a mighty fine article and so true: August 25, 2016
    Senior Housing a Remedy for Loneliness
    Friends outside of Shillman have asked, incredulously, how Marjie could possibly have moved into an 750-square-foot apartment at Shillman. “I said, ‘Easily – it’s just me and the dog.’ ” Despite having difficulty walking, she keeps moving. In early August, she boarded a bus to the Berkshires to enjoy the summer outdoors for three days. But she relishes her community of independent seniors the most in the cold, snowy winter months, when it’s more difficult to get together with her daughter living nearby. “When the roads are bad, there’s always someone to do something with,” she said. “I have a lot of friends here.” LIVING SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL AT ANY AGE, I SAY.

    Another great statement: “Americans share many beliefs about single people, and just about all of the negative ones turn out to be wrong. They are stereotypes, not facts.” Remember, many folks plan for successful, single living, however, we need to plan for end of life as well.

    Most of us don’t like to think about death and we rarely challenge the standard practices of the funeral industry. But as the world’s population expands, cemeteries are getting crowded and concerns around the environmental impact of cremation are rising. So what will the cemeteries of tomorrow look like?
    Hear our previous story on urban planning and green burials.
    From Compost You Came and to Compost You Shall Return
    Can religious groups get behind the Urban Death Project’s environmental plan for the dead?
    The Albany, New York, Diocese and a Trappist monastery in Virginia both host designated green burial spaces that don’t allow embalmed bodies or metal coffins, according to Teresa Berger, a professor of Catholic theology who has already planned her ecological burial and uses her future pinewood coffin as a bookshelf in her office at Yale Divinity School. For Catholics, she said, the Urban Death Project’s biggest challenge may be sacred space; even ashes are not supposed to be scattered but must be buried or placed in a Catholic cemetery.

Sadly, I am sure as a single prisoner, he did not plan for his death, a timely example: Julio Gonzalez, Arsonist Who Killed 87 at New York Club in ’90, Dies at 61By SAM ROBERTSSEPT. 14, 2016
    • Julio Gonzalez, a jilted lover whose arson revenge at the unlicensed Happy Land nightclub in the Bronx in 1990 claimed 87 lives, making him the nation’s worst single mass murderer at the time, died on Tuesday at a hospital in Plattsburgh, N.Y., where he had been taken from prison. He was 61.
    • The cause was apparently a heart attack, prison officials said.
