"It's a dream, a frightful dream, life is."
I'm sure some of you will recognize this quote from the movie "Gladiator" spoken by Commodus and attributed to Marcus Aurelius. Now, Marcus Aurelius said a lot, but I'm not quite sure if he ever said that. Regardless, I thought it was a pretty cool quote. And besides, haven't we all felt like this at one time or another.
"Death tugs at my ear and says: "Live, I am coming"
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
"This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality. Embrace this moment. Remember. We are eternal. This pain is an illusion."
So, in spite of the somber tone of this post, y'all have a fabulous day...carpe diem *S*

Hey! This looks like my melting Sousaphone, just before it finally melted down near pavement height, after I set it ablaze out of frustration! LOL, just kidding my friend! I love the lines, angles, curves, and color choices in this work. They all come together to create an image of a doorway into the great unknown! I love it! V Have an awesome weekend dear Mina! XOXOX

"To be immortal is to live forever, but to feel the pains of this reality one must become human to understand the tears of mankind!" Once again you touch the sacred within. Bravo!!!...:))
