Ok it’s been an emotional time, beginning many months back. While attending our mother through her hospital ordeal and her moving etc. over the last year, my brother was quietly attending to a tumor that took possession of his liver. It won on September 8th. He would’ve been 65 in November.
This culminated in some deep introspection with the grief of mourning my second brother to be taken by cancer. My father too in 2003.
It brought up feelings about family, about fulfilling a life, and brought home what it means to say Life Is Too Short. Because it is.
But with this reality there also must come license to do the thing, go to the places, be your best self, blossom, because there is an end here; the one certain thing for all of us. Grief has given me a greater appreciation for my time here and the people who are still here with me.
So head up, eyes clear, heart full, it’s time to get back on the horse ~
