“I took this series starting out for the Single frame stories # 51: Live and death.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer start of august so this is most on my mind thinking about this theme. As it concerns the body I wanted to let her be naked.

We are of the nature to grow old. There is no way to escape growing old.
We are of the nature to have ill health. There is no way to escape ill health.
We are of the nature to die. There is no way to escape death.
All that is dear to us and everyone we love are of the nature to change. There is no way to escape being separated from them.
Our actions are our only true belongings. We cannot escape the consequences of our actions. Our actions are the ground upon which we stand.
