A week ago, we flew across the country to see a family member who had been sent home for hospice care.
We are still reverberating from the many unexpected moments of healing and beauty that occurred during this powerful time of transition. We learned to go moment by moment, responding to whatever came during the mysterious process. This quote expanded our view:
Poet W.H. Auden’s friend Chester Kallman’s brilliant imagined last words:
“I’ve never done this before.”
…which is as open-hearted a way as we can think of for moving toward anything, in life or death…
This crimson bridge made by artist Steve Messem of 20,000 sheets of paper seems a fitting image.
For M. with love.
