Yesterday we went to register the death of my Mother in Law.

She died on Sunday Aged 93….pretty good I would say.

When we came out of the Registrars office the next people in line were a young couple with a tiny baby who was about to be registered.

That encapsulated to me the Life Cycle in a box (in this case a room of course) a death was registered immediately followed by a baby to be registered.

We all come in with nothing, and we all depart with nothing….in a material sense .

It’s the bit in between that is the fascinating part.
