Autumn.Leaves us with
a sense of loss.  Why
does dying have to be
so sad .. . . .. and yet,
so beautiful?

But what if meant new
beginnings?  What if
it signified unchartered
paths just waiting to
be explored? 

Would we mourn, then?

What if .. . . .. 

(c) 2010, Karla Dorman (10/19)

When we learn to push aside the temporary and the clutter it brings we move to the essentials and we celebrate.
Fine work, Karla.

I love to feel connected, and final good-byes are just too painful for any reason.

We may not mourn but just as we feel a sense of sadness when we see a loved one depart on a long trip or move away we would still feel sadness but with the knowledge that we will meet again it becomes barabble.

I was chatting with a woman the other day who works in a hospice, speaking of dying. She told me that the one thing she hears her patients say overwhelmingly is: "I wish I had forgiven myself earlier." Words of wisdom.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 10/19/2010
I am at peace with whatever season it is, although I have to admit summer tests my resolve. New beginnings can begin at any time, it is not seasonal. I have learned a valuable lesson in my older years that I wish I had learned and understood in my youth. "It is all about priorities!"
