Give or take a few days, it is a year since I launched my blog. As someone who loves to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, I felt the occasion should not go unmarked. So here is a photo I took at Recoleta Cemetery on Saturday that seems appropriate. I am calling it Speed & light.
The pattern that sweeps with such certainty towards the casket makes me think of our journey here on earth. Like the shadows and reflections that appear and shift and fade, we are here for a short while and then we are gone. Visiting the cemetery is a constant and useful reminder of our impermanence. It whispers to me to live as fully as I can, now.
Taking photos at the cemetery, writing the stories they inspire and sharing it all via my blog is a huge creative pleasure. I am expressing myself, which is part of living fully – and that is definitely something for me to celebrate.
