The Skull

Mediumspicy is currently creating a skull ring, reminiscent of that worn by Johnny Depp, Iggy Pop and Jim Jarmusch ( a purchase the three famous gentleman made while filming Dead Man). And of course, who can forget the silver skull ring worn by Keith Richards on the cover of his outrageously popular autobiography, “Life”.  The skull is a reminder of our own mortality–a suggestion that we should live like we are going to die. It is a symbol associated with horror and fear, a lifeless shell reeking of a tragic end. But life is short, my babies, and the only tragedy greater than it’s end is the time wasted throughout its duration. The promise of death is a gift, as it reminds us to really live.
