Ode to the dead dove

When on a visit to Newcastle, a town in Northern Kwazulu Natal, a province in South Arica, I shot this scene with my Blackberry...

Wild pigeon - dove - dead as a bird... litterally. It looked so peaceful... in the very cold morning air.

Death reminds us of the reason to live -- and live full out everyday, I guess. But then again... the majority of people around the world get trapped in daily existences that resembles just that: existence and not living; mere survival and not prosperity.

Life... in death we come to appreciate its every moment... and when we see the end is near, we perhaps long to all those missed opportunities when we opted to play it safe...
