Dead skin

 

I just found the skin of a snake, well what was left of it. It was like a transparent hose still showing the patterns of its scales. It was difficult to believe it was once the actual skin of one of those brown snakes. When you look at them, their skins look so shiny and firm. This skin look so fragile and dry now. It was death skin.

I guess the snake didn’t make a big fuss and drama for leaving that skin behind. She just got rid of that death cover and let it go without looking back to see if it there is still some part of it that could be reused.

The bliss of letting go

One of the most difficult things we have to face in our lives is losing something or someone.

We all feel safe and happy when we are living a life according to the standards stablished by our society, family or friends.
