Death. That’s a very scary word.

Nobody want’s to die. If they do, they’re free to check out at any point and time. Now I’m not advocating suicide, I’m simply stating the fact that everybody wants to live. If life was so awful, this entire planet wouldn’t have a single human on it.

Life is fun. Life is great. Life is well… life. Nobody knows for sure what we’re doing on this tiny rocks that’s floating in space. We all have different theories and opinions, however not a single person on this planet knows exactly why we are here and what we are supposed to do.

I think everybody has to make their own path and answer for the mistakes they’ve made. Life is like minesweeper. When you start out you have no information on what’s best to do and where to start. You just have to go, a.k.a. start clicking. If you click in the right spot, you might create better options and opportunities for yourself.

Some people are lucky while others are not so lucky. There will be moments in your life when you’re loaded with many options and openings. Other times, you will have to stop, look around, and deeply think before you make your next move.

Life isn’t always fair. If it was, there wouldn’t be people dying of hunger every day. Some people are unlucky and no matter how well they plan or how smart they are they will be in an impossible position. All you can do is move forward and hope you make the right choices.

The only difference between life and minesweeper, is that when you make a mistake in minesweeper, it’s over. When you make a mistake in life, it changes the way you play. Unless of course your life is as a minesweeper, then a mistake is the end in either case…

I’m sorry if that was a geeky analogy, however I think it makes sense.

In the end Death is inevitable. He catches everybody. The only thing you can do is to live your life to the fullest and enjoy every single moment of it.

Today we collected well thought out illustrations, artworks, and images portraying death. I’m not trying to get you “inspired” about death. I simply thought it would be a great idea to take a look at creative concepts and ideas that symbolize death. I ended up finding great examples, which had to be shared with others. Enjoy!
