Death is such a nasty thing. It is wretched and horrible. I depart with aquaintances alive and well and return to find some of them gone to the realm that lies between life and death. And now I wish Sean and myself had not gone to the meditational retreat for so long. I dearly wish I had been able to bid them goodbye while I was able to do so. Of these aquaintances, I believe it is John I most regret losing. Though I think I would much rather have considered him more of a friend than an mere aquaintance.
But, in the mists of all this sadness, George brought life into the world. I do wish them all wellness and long lives.
Tonight I will light white candles in honor of the lives that are here and those that have passed yet still remain with us on a different level and I will say a blessing for them with hopes that they will find peace wherever they reside on the planes of existance.
