While death is a scary thing for most people, I've read about spiritual masters who faced their transition with such grace and calm. To symbolize this way of approaching life's transition, a few years back, I did a photo series of flowers towards the end of their lives. That body of work was shown in a small gallery in Boston. This is one of the pieces:
