A memento mori is to be mindful of death. Although it is always present, so too is life, everchanging and flowering all around us. Death rips our hearts open to make us aware of what life really is, and to cherish each moment. In light of this, we may strive to flower ourselves, and to create beauty along the way. Go into the sorrows of the world joyfully.
