Memento Mori, The Watchtower New Installation by Retna & El Mac

April 15th, 2009

Mac and I just finished this installation for Taylor now a good friend, He expressed what interest him and we took his thoughts and ran with it from there.  This was the end of a 3 week run with Mac out here right after we did The Knight.

From Mac: “This is a mural Retna and I just painted in Los Angeles called Memento Mori. This is a Latin phrase meaning ‘be mindful of death’ and can be translated as ‘remember that you are mortal’ or ‘remember that you must die. That could seem a little grim, but the point is really to encourage us to properly value and make the most of our time here.”

Mac continues, “I painted the figure and Retna did all the rest.  Retna’s lettering in the background is from a pre-Hispanic Nahuatl/Azteca poem:

Must I go like the flowers that perish?
Will nothing remain of my name?
Nothing of my fame here on Earth?
At least my flowers, at least my songs.
Earth is the region of the fleeting moment…………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

We played him Spanish music, some Black Sabbath, some old Jazz n a lil 2pac and we reminisced about old friends we have lost, and sprinkled him with love.

Today I play it a lil Beatles.

Yesterday,
All my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly,
I’m not half the man I used to be,
There’s a shadow hanging over me,
Oh, yesterday came suddenly………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Thank you to everyone who always find a way into our lives to encourage us to stay diligent and true to the heart..

Peace Brothers and Sisters…. Que Dios Te Bendiga
