Visualizing death in a spectacular way.

Watercolours and Oil

Why should we stick to a preconceived idea of death? I imagine death in a thousand ways, the beyond, the void, plenitude, Eden, interstellar trips, new sensations, Jesus Christ, Satan, new creatures, darkness... it is unlimited and, although I am afraid of it, it will be another new stage, whether there is life after death or not. Visualizing it in such a spectacular way helps me not to be so afraid, to open my mind and know that the unknown scares us, that change produces insecurity in us, but life has to be lived , Death will have to be lived, as well!
