The gates of the world of the dead await us all. These beautiful rags and fleshy raiment shall undoubtedly one day be claimed by the Earth for the rest of eternity. But what do the eyes see on the other side? What does the soul endure once the body is spent? The wonders of the afterlife intrigue us all as we await to cross the ancient threshold. The highs and lows of life are all gifts, while we yet draw breath. The gift of life is a precious and delicate one. Knowing that we all share the same destination, we traverse the Earth bending time and space to our will. We create stories to be told and live out prophecies without ever realizing it. We must remember that life is truly amazing, as the young and the old march towards the same earthy dwelling.
