Search – Death and Dead Poets

Facing death, our own mortality, is the first step to living. Death, though, is not just in the extinguishing of a beating heart and thinking brain. Death is archetypal symbolized through the “death and rebirth” cycle of the Phoenix. Much like Vico, we find ways to “stay alive” or “die” to pieces of our life we no longer want.

 

Unbeing dead isn’t being alive.  ~e.e. cummings
