Last night they took Gary off of life support and my friend lost her best friend and soul mate. There are even fewer words than before and I’m deeply saddened that this had to happen. Two people in my life have lost their partners in the last month and a half, both sudden and unexpected; both far too young.
I don’t know what is happening to the world, why the energy feels like it is shifting and turning into something cold and hard and ugly. All I know is that when I feel like my only option is to go along with it, to get angry and grow distant, the truth is that I have to open my heart a little wider to let out some of the light; to take on some of that burden for others who can’t.
I hope that whatever Gary encounters beyond this life is filled with the things he loved most.
