Through the Door-
This past week, I spent some time at a house no one wants to visit. Hundreds of people go there, but no one really wants to enter.
It is the house for the dying.
Families know that when they cross the threshold, one of them will not be walking out. It is the most difficult door I’ve ever had to enter. Unfortunately, my family has gone through that door several times in the past ten years. We all know that death is a certainty. Yet in our culture, we have somehow taken death out of the equation of living. Young people think death is far off, like a distant country that you could visit someday, but probably never will. We have special places for dying and special words that make it seem somehow less final. But the truth is, the death of a loved one brings us face to face with our own mortality. The dash between the years of your existence is short. Live each day as if it is your last, because one day, it will be.
One of the reasons I enjoy creating portraits is that it is a way of preserving joy in your heart. If you would like to discuss creating a legacy portrait for your family, please give us a call. We offer a complimentary design consultation to all new clients. You may reach us at 209-918-6627.
