Everyday Death

Every day we die, multiple times.

Occasionally it’s much more spectacular, but on the whole these are subtle deaths that many of us probably don’t notice.

In addition to the usual cycles of growth and decomposition of our physical bodies galloping closer to a physical death with every ticking second, we die emotional, egotistical and spiritual deaths.

Part of us dies upon completion of some sort of project, be it successful or not. Part of us dies should a friend or loved one point out flaws or frustrations in our actions. Part of us dies when we merge with others. Part of us dies should we accidentally misplace/loose our favorite book that we’ve read ten times.

Women have a unique relationship with the cycles of death that are seemingly unfathomable to most men.

Every day, we die. It’s up to us to choose how to honor that within ourselves and others.
