"I have always looked upon decay as being just as wonderful and rich an expression of life as growth" - Henry Miller
We came into existence and live to our subjective definition of what is good and evil. We age; starting to feel regret, and eventually, die. As sad and frightful as it seems, flesh is flesh and death is inevitable.
But in death is beauty. As we lie within the depths of the earth, there is hope for a new life. A fresh start as if given apologies by the environment which we, as beings bestowed with the responsibility for all created, have failed to protect.
And in that moment, in the process of decay: man and earth will grow as one.
