There isn't much of a point to all this, except i'm reminded of this image:
This is the parting message of the Catacombs, the mass tomb under Paris. It reads "He fears not Death who has learned to despise Life", which I prefer to read as "Don't fear death; fear not living.".
Everything is glorious. Love it.
A few of my pics from the catacombs are available at http://www.ojohaven.com/ojo/1999/03/16/.
