For those unfamiliar with the term, a memento mori (Latin for 'remember that you will die') is a popular artistic convention used throughout art history for illustrating the fleeting nature of life and the inevitability of death. It always fascinated me during my undergrad days (because let's face it, when you're young you tend to think that death doesn't apply to you), and now that Halloween is finally here, it couldn't feel more appropriate.
So enjoy this ghoulish holiday and all its macabre charm, but do not go gentle into that good night — we have a lot of living left to do, and I for one plan on celebrating that fact with a fist-full of mini chocolates. xx
