I finally got my brothers art framed… – @commixturedesigns (Instagram)

I had him draw up copies from Ryan Holidays – Daily Stoic store,

‘Memento Mori’ & ‘The Dance of Death’ could seem pretty morbid to the outside world, But when you break down the meaning they are very motivational…

‘Mento Mori’ – Meaning Remeber Death

Memento Mori

‘The Dance of Death’ has a skeleton holding a crossbow with the caption

‘“Ma flesche (asseure toy) n’espargnera personne
Vous danserez trestout ce balet, que je sonnne”

Which translates to

“My arrow (I promise you) spares no one
You will all dance the ballet of which I sing”

– Meaning that we are all dancing to the ballet of life, Avoiding the Arrow… But one day as promised we will not be spared.

When It’s 5am

In this groggy exhausted state, we often forget that it is a privilege to wake up today.

“When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love …” Marcus Aurelius
