Death is not waiting for us at the end of a long road. Death is always with us, in the marrow of every passing moment. She is the secret teacher hiding in plain sight. She helps us to discover what matters most.
The quote seemed to strike a worthwhile perspective on a day that’s celebrated very differently in different cultures around the world. The thought above was drawn from a commentary by Maria Papova on Brain Pickings.
The cover image was from another commentary by Ms. Popova born from Duck, Death, and the Tulip, by Wolf Erlbruch.
