Nature sheds its skin steadily as it naturally renews itself with each quick escape of breath. This process of transition affects both natural and man-made things alike.
If any, change is the only consistent thing in our lives, and more often than not, it involves breaking down and letting go to make way for another. We let used ideas rust as we develop better ones, only to repeat the process of rot as we progress to execute another step further.
Life is a never-ending process of decay, as much as it is also a continuous process of creation. This gives importance to decay as a vital component of life to sustain itself. We can investigate this from different vantage points but we can not deny its existence. It is a continuous symphony played by slowly transforming every thing into portions familiar to dust, leaving seeds of narratives behind.
