memento mori

memento mori

A memento mori, mindfullness about death.

Although death 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 in this fullness, to cherish each moment. In light of this, we may strive to blossom and to flourish ourselves and to create beauty and humor along the way so that we go into the sorrows of the world joyfully. Memento mori object. Treasure of awareness.
