We know that death is a biological fact ... and all it does is confirm the laws of nature. but is there not another side of death -- it's mysteriousness. all of us clearly yearn for some sense of peace, tranquility, stability in this rational world, but most of all do we not all seek to love someone in this emotionally impoverished, ambivalent existence? we all face death, but what greater anguish and suffering can compare when one loses their soul mate -- the one that gave meaning to heaven on earth. there is no defense against the powers of death, despair, and cynicism. this world only offers unfulfillment and injustice whereas 'real love is forever'. it is a love indivisible, and despair will not be the last word and injustice will not persist. and so, in the resurrection of Eric, his love for Shelley is about the ceaseless pilgrimage they shared together in this world. and it is the gathering of all their dreams beyond the dimensions of space and time that he carries on and glorifies Shelley to create a new and whole relationship. the ultimate reality -- a new eternal future, undivided once again .... the consequences done in heaven cannot spare the consequences done in earth. The location of the tattoo (lower back) is actually quite secondary as to why i had the tattoo done. it was inked by a great tattoo artist, his name is Matt, proprietor of "Art Addictions" in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.
