It’s my time to swoon over Beau and Edythe ‘cause I’ve spent too much love on Edward and Bella already. 😂 Finally. ❤️

Sometimes, you encounter something that makes you pause, think, reflect, reminisce, question, accept, realize. One such moment for me. A visit to the "monumental Mason", and my dad calls out the name of a person who's name was being etched on the gravestone. I of course knew the person. A long time neighbor of ours during our childhood/growing up days. I reminisced, his face flashed through my mind, longish hair, safari suit clad - mostly grey, and hands tucked behind his back and packing up and down the pavement in front of my granddad's shop. Cut to the present - the etcher was concentrating hard on his task at hand, click, thud, dhud, chip, tik, tik....#lifeanddeath#truth#eventuality#thought#reminisce#flashback#dark#monumentalmason#all#oneofthosemoments#pause#ephemeral#lifeistemporary

I see many abandoned graves when I walk in the hills in Andong. I saw a lot of them as well when I was a child. That scene had been imprinted on my mind in my childhood and has given me a strong impression and message since then. Therefore, I wanted to keep that in my pictures and I eventually did that. Before I took the pictures, I prayed for the deceased under the graves for their peace and eternal rest. I could not photograph some abandoned graves that were seriously damaged because it hurt my mind to see them. I decided not to forget that scene and it influenced me to meditate on death with respect for it. We are alive but will pass away. I hope the image of the graves to motivate you to contemplate life and death.
어릴 적에도 그리고 성년이 된 지금도 안동의 야산을 오르며 버려진 무덤들을 많이 본다. 나에게는 어릴 적에 각인되어 현재까지도 강한 인상과 메시지를 주는 이미지이다. 그래서 사진으로 남겨서 간직하고 싶었고, 무덤 속 고인의 평화와 안식을 위한 기도를 올린 후 사진을 찍었다. 버려진 무덤들 중 지나치게 황폐화된 것들은 내 마음을 아프게 하여 차마 찍지 못하였다. 그러한 장면은 죽음에 대하여 경건한 마음으로 묵상한 후 가슴에 담아 두었다. 무덤들의 모습이 그대가 삶과 죽음에 대하여 고찰해 보는 계기가 되었으면 한다.

"Do fundo desta noite que persiste
A me envolver em breu - eterno e espesso,
A qualquer Deus - se algum acaso existe,
Por minha alma insubjugável agradeço.
Nas garras do destino e seus estragos,
Sob os golpes que o acaso atira e acerta,
Nunca me lamentei - e ainda trago
Minha cabeça - embora em sangue - ereta.
Além deste oceano de lamúria,
Somente o Horror das trevas se divisa;
Porém o tempo, a consumir-se em fúria,
Não me amedronta, nem me martiriza.
Por ser estreita a fenda - eu não declino,
Nem por pesada a mão que o mundo espalma;
Eu sou o mestre de meu destino;
Eu sou o capitão de minha alma."
"Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul." #Invictus#BookOfVerses#LifeAndDeath#Echoes#WillianErnestHenley#Poesia#poema#instapoem#instapoema#instapoesia#CaptainOfMySoul#MasterOfMyFate#pretoebranco#preto#branco#blackandwhite#black#white#boanoite
Fire in the sky. Can you feel the excitement!? Your feet have landed upon the new path. It may feel slightly uncomfortable taking the first few steps, but when you realize how fucking amazing the path is, you're going to walk it not only with confidence, but also with honor, trust, less resistance, and all of it will be done humbly. You are more aware of yourself, where you have been, how you have felt, where you want to go and how you want to feel. It's a new start. Death happens in our lives, not just as an end, but also as a beginning. Nothing moves forward without something being left behind. Feel the new ground beneath your feet and smile my friends. It's time to step into your power. 🙌🙏💪✌

Today was a very funny sort of day. One that was filled with all the highs and lows of life. I got to make things this morning (after a less than adequate amount of sleep) and I got to talk to teenage girls about things (and people) I love this evening. This afternoon, I was listening to truths I didn't know about a friend who has gone (peacefully, and after a good long life, but somewhat unexpectedly) and singing hymns with a church full of people celebrating the full life of our friend. It was a mixture of a day.
Still. I slipped this pot with a lovely blue coloured slip this morning. And that's enough.
