Just returned from our trip to Louisville to visit my husband's brother's widow. Like these twisted trees, human relationships and the events of our lives are intertwined. Lives begin, lives continue, lives end, and still the complex interconnectedness continues. We are creatures who are meant to interface with each other...to communicate, to empathize, to comfort and console. We always learn from each other, in crisis or in celebration, in wealth or in poverty; we are, in a sense, married to each other. When one family member marries or divorces or passes from life in the body, the entire family undergoes the change and the adjustment to it.
It is clear to me that life is unending and that some of the energy of a person lingers on in this place even after their spirit has departed. That person's presence can be felt, can be sensed, can be heard. Perhaps it is like the dew on the plants after the dawn. We are reminded of the cool, refreshing transformation and the nourishment that stays on.
Spirit of the Universe, of all living beings, of all life everywhere--let us recognize and acknowledge the ongoing ness of life and the presence of those we love, even in their seeming absence.
