‘A Final Crawl Through The Valley of Death’

‘A Final Crawl Through The Valley of Death’. April 2007.

Part of the manifesto node: Death.

I captured this green insect’s last moments on the windowsill of the Gayton Thorpe round tower church, from which my dear Mum’s grave is nearby. I sat in the church for a while, listening to nothingness and peace, when my eye was drawn to this spot. Most of the flies were dead, others dying (see elsewhere), but this green insect was wading right through the field of bodies and agony until it could walk no longer.
