death comes around

Posted in Photography, Random Photos by Keegan on March 3, 2010

I have been very aware of the concept and event of death recently. I think everyone has a certain moment when they are young where they realize death is inevitable.  My sister, who is 4 years younger than me, was having a hard time with this realization when she was 7 or 8 years old. I was probably her age when I first thought about death, however, it wasn’t until I saw her fear, that I started to fear death myself. Now, I don’t fear death but accept it as something that is going to come, at some point that I have almost zero control over. Maybe if we were conscious from a very young age, that we were actually all slowly dieing, and that death wasn’t something to fear, but something to gauge how valuable our lives are, we as people would live life as full as possible, and take more chances. I am not positive, but I think it is the emotion of fear that causes people to live so cautiously and safe. The people I admire the most are almost always ones that take those risks and do something different.

P.s. sorry for the graphic image. Hopefully you wont be scared to come back.
