So, this link is from the marjie archives…please note, this might be a bit disconcerting to some…so, if your kids read your blogs over your shoulder, first, tell them to get their own blog, and second, cover their eyes [keeping an extra hand to cover yours – just in case]
Now, this is a potent photo gallery of terminally ill people, who gave their permission to be professionally photographed before and after their ensuing deaths.
It is quite interesting for me to see that contrast of life and death so clearly. The “light” of life is replaced by the look of death…eerie yet beautiful. The passion that makes us human is gone.
Accompanying the portraits, you’ll read passionate and ardent narratives…one woman bemoans her impending death by sharing, “I’d only just bought myself a new fridge-freezer! If I’d only known!”
Life is precious, yet the “look” of life is temporary.
author’s note: this post, for me, began as quite ominous and dark and instantly feels so ravishing, engaging and beautifully spiritual.
author’s second note: I know how much we all hate the “more” tag, I’m using it anyway. Rebellion with the fear of future blogging mutiny, I know. But I’d rather you choose to see the portraits than hop on this here blog and loose your lunch!
author’s third note: I like author’s notes
