Scissors of Fate






The scissors of fate
cut through the thread of life
With a final breath
the gateway to the soul opens
Destination unknown..
but rewarded

Greek Mythology
The Goddess of Necessity, Themis, brought forth three lovely daughters, known as The Fates.  All living things must eventually submit to these divine daughters of Zeus and Themis. Their names are: Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos.  Life is woven by Clotho, measured by Lachesis and finally, in a very literal sense, the thread of life is cut by Atropos. They laugh at our feeble attempts to cheat them because they always prevail.
