Be safe my friends ’tis All Hallows’ Eve

You may have noticed that we have changed our cover photo for the week with a 17th Century Dutch Vanitas painting. This is in celebration of All Hallows’ Eve.

There is such a thrill in trick or treat, but remember this: it is a time to take care, and to be kind, for you must take heed of the moral lesson of memento mori and remember we all must die. And what awaits you then? ….

Juan de Valdes-Leal, Vanitas
Spanish, 1670-1672
Seville, Hospital de la Caridad
