A memento mori to be mindful that, although death is ever present, life goes on, everchanging, and flowering all around us in endless ways. Death exists to make us aware of what life really is. In light of this, we may strive to flower ourselves, and to create beauty along the way.
Memento mori objects. Treasures of awareness.
