Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Genesis's story of creation, in how humanity was created from the mud of the earth, intrigued me. Also, the Jewish myth of the Golem had parallels. Both man and golem were created from the Earth, and return to it.
With Halloween ending and the Day of All Souls [Or Dia de los Muertos in Latin American countries] being within a couple of days, I always had a feeling that we place too much fear in death. And then we avoid it and never deal with the concept until it happens. Or that's how I feel about how its perceived where I live.
If anyone wants permission, just message me and I'll try to get back to you as quick as I can.
