This would have been "Today's Beauty," but I have more to say...
I'm not sure why, but seeing my cupboard organized like this gives me great pleasure. We all have our quirks, I guess :)
Izzy, in The Fountain, looks at her husband as she nears the end of her life and wonders about "death as an act of creation." It's a pivotal concept in the movie, and for all the avoidance of death that people try to make, it happens, in various forms, throughout our life.
When I used to read Tarot cards way back when, I knew that the Death card signified great change more than it signified death. Change can be a good thing, or a bad thing, depending on how we approach it. Change, to switch it up a bit, can be creative. Great change can indeed be an act of creation.
Life is short. You can expect, optimistically, 30,000 days. How do you make each day count? How do you fill each with the joy it deserves and how do you recognize the goodness around you, to celebrate that and really feel it?
That's a life skill, and a good one to acquire.
Izzy kept appreciating the small things in her life. She was a woman on a mission, in spite of her approaching death, to find wonder and discovery.
Wonder and discovery are all around us, no matter what path life takes. The time for enjoyment is always now.
