The front side of the Memento Mori coin I carry with me at all times.
  • I am basking in the glow of happiness, prosperity, or love…I simply look at the skull and think “Remember you will die.”
  • I start to think more of myself than I should or otherwise forget how absolutely insignificant I am in the greater universe…I simply look at the skull and think “Remember you will die.”
  • I get the sad news that someone I love has died (as I did just over a month ago when I lost my dear godmother)…I simply look at the skull and think “Remember you will die.”
