Often the butt of jokes, The Big Sleep holds many in deep fascination. We both fear and venerate the dead since the beginning of time. Whistle when strolling a grave yard at midnight? That truly is black comedy. Some obsess on senseless tragedy and the arbitrary fall of the grim reapers sickle. Yet, is there comfort found in deaths finality, in knowing its certain outcome. We know for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.
Laid to rest. At Peace? We wake, we mourn, though rarely gain insight. We try to cheat death via miracle and medicine. With vigor, we play beat the clock, truly the ultimate game. Such valiant competitors are we. Yet all heroics fail. A dirt nap awaits.
TearDropMemories investigates the nuances and rituals of the lost; the fallen loved and long remembered. We delve deeply into the history, mystery and deep symbolism often hinted at by these artisan created memories. Treasures buried, reflections, the essence of long ago is offered here.
