As you may have possibly noticed, I am quite obsessed with skulls! I can’t quite give you an explanation as to why I do, I just find myself completely drawn to them - the symbolism and imagery it holds is just fascinating! A lot of people take the imagery of a skull as something morbid, evil and bad, yet look at the mexican festival day of the dead and all the beautiful meanings behind it. and also rich with images of skulls! I think they remind us to see the beauty in life as often as possible, as it is so fragile, and to remember to love as much as you can!
one kiss, my angel of the earth, one kiss tasted slowly, and then goodnight.
