Tibetan Sky Burials

I found this short but interesting article on Tibetan sky burials I wanted to share.  It's got gorgeous, Pinterest-worthy pictures in it of the countryside and burial sites.

I never thought much about the multiple ways people bury their dead until I read the Sandman graphic novel series by Neil Gaiman.  The huge differences between cultures was a driving force for writing Deadhill.  It's always a transporting feeling to read about other cultures and their traditions, but it's always unifying.  Whether burying by sky, fire, earth, or water, it's still a way to remember, a way to honor and say goodbye.
