As more and more interaction goes online due to work being increasingly remote, we find that we are staring at our digital selves on the laptop or smartphone screen more often than usual.

"Carpe Diem" recognizes the brevity of life, the value of time and the inevitability of death. It tells us not to waste time in contemplation, anxiety or regret.
