Memento Mori*

for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return

Genesis 3:19c (King James Version)

I’m in Manhattan observing this construction undertaking in the Manhattan Yards (West 30s) where fancy high rises are coming up. From what I can see, these will be for those with serious bank. These will also be a testament to somebody’s greatness as well.

However, we need to remember that we are dust-ephemeral, passing stuff that is a mere flash in the pan of eternity. The above high rises will be torn down and nature will overtake their land in a few generations. The occupants therein will one day die and be forgotten, no matter how great they might have been.

Food for thought my friends. Peace.

(*Latin for, “remember death”)

About dangerouschristian

My name is Victor Reynolds. I'm a Christian who desires a more mystical approach to my spiritual life. I'm also a photographer as well who loves to create. I call myself "dangerous" because anyone-especially a Christian-who dares to be beyond the "norm" and allows to let the Christ live in them is dangerous.
