22 days of BATS 2014. Day Eight: Death

I was all about to write today about the Death card, and how it isn’t about literal death. But given today’s events, that’s going to be really difficult. So perhaps that’s the lesson to learn: Death is inevitable. It’s how we deal with it that’s the challenge. The Death card reminds us our time on this plane is finite. Live life to the fullest. Celebrate yours and the life of those you share your time with. It shouldn’t all be doom and gloom. Again, Death isn’t literal. It’s about when things end: Projects. Friendships. Relationships. Books. Movies.

So when the Death card comes into play, consider it less a STOP sign, but more of a warning of turns ahead on the path. Time to reflect. “Stop and smell the Roses.” When you reach the end, what will you remember? How will you be remembered?

Tomorrow’s card is the Heirophant

P.S. R.I.P Mister Williams. You made life weird and cool, and I will never forget you.
