    Located at Barcelona's Poblenou Cemetery, this magnificent sculpture, titled Kiss of Death (El Petó de la Mort in Catalan and El Beso de la Muerte in Spanish), depicts death (in the form of a winged skeleton) planting a kiss on a young man's forehead. The epitaph bears famous verses by one of Catalan's greatest poets, Jacint Verdaguer: “And his young heart can not help; in his veins the blood stops and freezes, And encouragement lost faith embraces, Fall feeling the kiss of death.”

    "Everything that have and possess are merely things that we rely on for a little while. If we understand it like this, we know the nature of all conditioned things. Then although we have something, it is as if we did not have anything. Getting is the same as losing. Losing is the same as getting." - Ajahn Chah

    I love graveyards. Does that seem strange? There is something so beautiful and profound about them. Buried there are the shells of souls who now know the other side. It's like looking at an empty crib after a child has grown up, but even more peaceful.
