I have not heard that kind of legend. Thrilling.

There is a lesson here.

Wise words. Sometimes you can't argue with Death. This mural underscores that point. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

Sharon was thinking what I thought: There's a spiritual message in this mural. So often death is thought of as something that drags us down: In the Hebrew Bible dead people went to Hades or Sheol, the place of the dead, somewhere deep in the earth. But death here leads upward into the light! Quite amazing.
