The Circle of Life

Sreejit at The Seeker’s Dungeon has been hosting an event called On Living and Dying.  I participated early in the challenge (Am I Contributing to My Living or My Dying?) but I find myself continuing to ponder the subject.  I realized that I have lots of photos of birthing and living and some that could probably be considered rebirth, but I had none of dying. Yesterday I remedied that situation.

As I was writing this post, it occurred to me that I might be able to find evidence of rebirth already, and I did! Rebirth is occurring amidst the dying. What a good example of the circle of life.

  1. Karuna! I had been thinking of emailing you about that. I read something said by Eckhart Tolle (I think) recently about dying and decaying things are midway between existence as an individual and returning to the void…a lovely concept. And I remember reading that at least one branch of Chinese aesthetics appreciates the beauty and transformation of dying chrysanthemums and other plants. So recording the beauty of decay is the next logical step! Lovely.
