Bones

I came across a disturbing yet fascinating find a month or two ago when I was researching for sightseeing ideas in Prague.  I almost don’t want to write about this now for the selfish reason of my wanting you to see initial pictures of this from my personal collection of photos after I visit the place, instead of you seeing this along with others’ photos of it on the internet.   I want to be the first to introduce to you the Bone Church in a town called Kutna Hora.  Basically, there are human bone sculptures inside an ossuary that is made up of bones from 40,000 people!  Incredible, eerie, and thought provoking as seeing thousands of human bones made into an art form makes you think about the impermanence of our lives.  We are here on this earth, and then we are GONE.  I don’t find sadness in this, though.  I only think of enjoying life to the absolute fullest, traveling the world, and living my life with honestly, integrity, and the utmost respect.  Carpe Diem!

I can’t wait to witness this in a few days with pictures to share.  I hope you can wait until I report back but if I were you, I would be on the internet NOW.
