On Mourning: Bless The Wind Beneath Their Wings

DO YOU REALIZE THAT EVERYONE YOU KNOW SOMEDAY WILL DIE

“For Dust Thou Art, And Unto Dust Shalt Thou Return”

The recent tragedy suffered by the Amish people (and their peaceful endurance in the face of it), the ongoing reports of violence from all across America and the continuing fatalities in Iraq, Afganistan, Lebanon and Israel has led many to a general state of grief. The video selection presented here from the final minutes of the last episode of “Six Feet Under” is but another perspective on issues related to those feelings of mourning. Warning: Do not watch this if you aren’t prepared for an emotionally draining experience involving the death of loved ones and yourself. These few minutes capture the inevitability of death, both the point and pointlessness of life, and the crushing surprise and lingering despair caused by death for survivors:

 

THE FLAMING LIPS

Do you Realize?

Do You Realize – that you have the most beautiful face

Do You Realize – we’re floating in space –

Do You Realize – that happiness makes you cry

Do You Realize – that everyone you know someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes – let them know

You realize that life goes fast

It’s hard to make the good things last

You realize the sun doesn’t go down

It’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do You Realize – Oh – Oh – Oh

Do You Realize – that everyone you know

Someday will die –

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes – let them know

You realize that life goes fast

It’s hard to make the good things last

You realize the sun doesn’t go down

It’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do You Realize – that you have the most beautiful face

Do You Realize

From the Final Minutes of “SIX FEET UNDER”

Honoring the March of the Penguins

The formal Tuxedo jacket made its debut in the stylishly luxurious millionaires’ oasis of Tuxedo Park, New York, on this very day way back in 1886. It is “properly fitting” that we honor the advent of the highly esteemed Tuxedo today. How on earth could we do without it??
