I’m posting this reminder a few days earlier than I normally do since the holiday season is upon us. I already have a few submissions, but would like to see more for our first member-submitted topic.
The topic for the January 2010 edition, is The Final Resting Place. This theme comes from Colleen McHugh, author of the GYR blog, The R.I.P.PERS. Colleen wants us to investigate how families determine their final resting place. She goes on to say:
In today's mobile society, does one choose a place near where they last lived? Or do they return to the place of their roots? Do they rest in a family plot? If so, and if married, whose family plot? How has the determination of the final resting place changed between the time of our ancestors and now?
Colleen poses some excellent questions, which I’m sure will get a lot of varied responses for this carnival edition.
As always, write a blog post that address this edition’s theme and submit it to the carnival using the submission form. Submissions for this edition are due by December 25. Be sure to include a short description of your post in the “remarks” section of the submission form.
