Last Saturday my brother-in-law invited my wife and I to the so-called  "進金大典": the ritual of moving the remains of my late parent-in-laws from the old cemetery in Xindan to the new one loacated at some hill in norhtern Taiwan and facing the immense Pacific Ocean, where is an auspicious place for the deads and their offsprings, as per feng shui. The newly-built graveyard is big enough for an extended family, so he also placed the urns of his parent-in-laws in there, and there are still a lot of space for the "newcomers". 

My brother-in-law implied that it could also be the final resting place for my wife, his elder sister, and I if we would.  Later, my wife said to me that she is reluctant to accept the kind offer from his brother, and asked what shall I think about it.  Well, to tell you the truth, at least, so far at 74, I have not thought this kind of things regarding my after life because it is all the same to me for where I will be going.

Basically, "不知生, 焉知死"
