John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

What a brilliant idea. I think today's society is in the brainwave: out of sight, out of mind. This brings things to a very personal level.
Ah! I will taste that dew, for me ’tis meet,/And when the moon her pallid face discloses,/I’ll gather some by spells, and incantation.

What this gentleman did with his earth closet is environmentally sound. Earth closets are making a comeback with some eco people- though they call them compost toilets now.
