Death and the Artist



The Scottish author George MacDonald once wrote "How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset". 

How we look at death is as important as how we look at life. Death teaches us strength and compassion and lets us know that inevitably all things change over time even if we cannot always sense its passage. 

When I walk in the Cities of the Dead it is a reminder to me not of death, but of time. I look upon these solid stone tombs and I see the tiny cracks in the marble and then I look upon my artists hands and see the tiny wrinkles on my flesh and I understand that flesh or stone, nothing is ever permanent. 

So why be afraid? Like George said, its only the sunset. What happens when the sun rises again?
