Daily Draw: Memento Mori, The Rose, and Alchemy

Good morning, darlings! Your oracle was at a baseball game last night, way way up in the high seats above the third base line, the getting to which involved a great deal of walking and climbing up and down, up and down, over and around (we passed many a mountain goat and sherpa here), so this morning she is very fatigued. Consequently today’s draw will be very simple and direct, which is sometimes best anyway: all things die, but don’t be fooled. Just because something dies doesn’t mean it doesn’t live as something else. Things change, and there’s great beauty in that. Don’t be so afraid of aging that you miss the beauty of aging, and don’t be so focused on youth and beauty that you miss the fact that you cannot become the next thing without dying to youth and beauty first.
