A family member passed away last month, somewhat unexpectedly. Every person in your life is there for a reason. Sometimes you know why while they are in your life, sometimes you figure it out later.
As with every death, I find myself a little confused. The swirl of emotions, the inner reflection, the attempt to understand, the healing. I've been turned inward, trying to deal with the confusion, but it's time to open up again.
Tears have a wisdom all their own. They come when a
person has relaxed enough to let go and to work through
his sorrow. They are the natural bleeding of an
emotional wound, carrying the poison out of the system.
Here lies the road to recovery.
