'Memento Mori' - Deb's page

'Memento Mori'- Latin for 'remember you will die'. Remember you will die- we are mortal beings interacting with an eternal cycle of life. While there is life there must be death, and both are ever-present. My problems are all existential- if ever I'm wondering directly about anything that isn't existential, I'm wondering about how it relates to something that is. So I guess it's only natural that my journal theme be something so... epic. It has occurred to me that we, as people, are just about never exposed to the reality of our own death like other living things. This is a result of life being less about survival as about pleasure, because our basic needs are being taken care of.


  1. I don't know about that Deb, 'that we as people are just about never exposed to the reality of our own death'. I watched and nursed my husband until he passed away from cancer and was with my best friend and cousin as she was dying of cancer. So yes maybe it was not my own death but a big part of me died with each of them, and it does make you think of your own mortality and appreciate what you DO have. I found your page VERY interesting :-).

  2. You have created a really strong page Deb and I am interested in seeing it when it arrives here. I think it is something that needs to be viewed 1st hand.

  3. Amazing page... very intrigueing! Can't wait to see it in real life! :-)
