The Order of the Good Death!

I’m so excited! Death to Hollywood is being featured in the blog section of a really cool website called “The Order of the Good Death.”

Caitlin Doughty is a mortician in Los Angeles and I saw her being interviewed on the news one night and immediately googled the website. She caught my attention when she said one of the reasons for creating the website was to help demystify death and to help people accept it a little more…or something like that, I’m paraphrasing and I’ve only had a half cup of coffee. But I could tell from what she was saying that we had similar views about death; that it is a natural part of life that shouldn’t be feared, but embraced, and after seeing the interview, I emailed her and said I would love to offer one of my stories to her blog if she was interested, and she was!

I want you to read the “mission” part of The Order of the Good Death because she has a section on the Fear of the Death, Home Death Care, and my favorite part, Natural Burial and Embracing Decay. She also has videos and other cool things on the site.

And this is the link to the blog section where Death to Hollywood is featured:

I want to thank Caitlin for featuring one of my stories and for helping people be a little less freaked out by death.

Have a wonderful day and be happy you’re alive!

About Death To Hollywood

My name is Celeste Donohue and I am a writer/comedian who started this blog to tell stories about my life growing up in a funeral home and my adult life which I have spent in Hollywood, California – hence the name, “Death To Hollywood”. Hopefully, you like to read those kinds of stories. If not, go read something serious and boring.....

    Congratulations! I am sure the other blog will benefit from your stories. It is a pretty interesting site. Aside from your entry 🙂 I liked the discussion about old vs new bodies and what is okay and not okay to gawk at in a museum.

    Will you have more crossover posts? That will be great. More and more people will get a chance to laugh at your funeral home stories. 🙂

    Loved it. Can’t imagine having to be that quiet all the time as a little kid. It’s hard enough being quiet during services as a grown-up funeral director!
