49. Live Fast, Die Young

by Jarvo J February. 18, 2010 5577 views

The match that has started burning is the same as the others. Same, and yet different. The match that has started burning has started to fulfil it's whole purpose of being. And yet, in the instant it ignited, it started on a course of it's own distruction. The one with the halo, will die the quickest. In the midst of life we are in death etc. as Morrissey once said.

In what way are we like matches?

I love the photo and the question.
I think we are created to be like matches in that, as we give ourselves completely, we give light and warmth to those nearby, even though we are eventurally "used up" in the process.

Haha.....was going to say "very deep" before I read Mike's comment....so Mike and I are thinking alike. Apparently you're feeling very philosophic today, Jon. The shot is great.....very interesting the way there are three flames coming from the head. Oh! Maybe that's how we're like matches.....we all have heads!!

I love matches because they enkindle
candles and create an atmosphere in my home that I love.

Wonderful shot, Jon!!!

On a mortal plane, I forgot to say, "great shot". Very impressive.

Oh great divine Janus-like triple-headed god, Jarvo, wherefore shall you come from the mountain and guide us to the true light of the immortal Bic lighter or shall we fall prey to the iniquitous zippo?
