“And I looked, and behold, a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death”
~The Book of Revelation, 6:8
Do not fear Death, as she dances toward you. Though Death has traditionally been depicted in the Tarot as a reaper of souls, her presence actually foretells change. If we ponder death, we can see that, in time, all of us change from living beings to... something else. Life is all about impermanence. Death is simply the most dramatic example of this. As time steadily marches forward, each one of our fleeting moments brings us something new, and each one ushers out the one it replaced. As we move through time, we can either resist the inevitable changes -- seek to create permanence -- or we can bend to them. As none of us can escape death, neither can we escape the change which is constantly occurring. Denying death's existence does not prevent its occurrence. This lesson is valuable, as it pertains to all forms of change. Accepting life's shifting currents with grace and flexibility will always be less painful than ineffectively trying to stall their flow.

This was a 1-shot render! Those are rare for me. The only postwork is the DOF blur (added using the z-depth image from PPro) and the one halo/sparklie behind her head.)
