The Gate of Hell

The Gate of Hell

I know something titled “The Gate of Hell” seems to be an odd sort of reason to live, but I’m sticking with this one. No, it doesn’t turn your gray skies to blue. It just puts your life in perspective. This is where “The Thinker” was intended to go, by the way. The iconic Rodin sculpture is not just some guy thinking about what to have for lunch or anything mundane like that. He’s sorting out where he is in the scheme of things.

As long as you’re alive, this says to me, you can still sort things out. No spiritual problem is insurmountable. They seem huge, but are not insurmountable.

    …and this was based off of Dante’s Inferno?

    All of this is sorrow and death that it is portraying, there is still time to sort things out? So in the mists of darkness, there is still a way to get out and renew yourself
    is this in italy?

    This is in Paris, at the Rodin museum. And, yes, as long as you’re alive, you can sort things out.
