Today we were asked to embrace death in the same way we embrace birth and any other of life’s events. People shy away from the subject, but “Everything that has a beginning has an end” (the Oracle in the Matrix). It was cathartic to know that everything is arranged, I have my music planned, my message to the people I love and private messages for everyone, for everyone else, well they can fuck off but they know who they are 🙂
Death isn’t a stranger to my life and I have prepared for the my demise, video’s to my kids, my last wishes and a couple of jokes for the wake etc etc etc
So I’m going to explore this from various directions. I have a graveyard shoot later this month but I have to look at death and what it means to me. After walking around a graveyard I realised that nothing is forever and a missed day is a lost day. DEATH isn’t taboo, and I agree that we should talk more about it, or in my case through images too!
