Seeing a dear family friend in the hospital yesterday – emaciated with four broken ribs and a punctured lung – reminded me of all my loved ones who have passed away and the times when they were still alive. I miss and love you all. I see you in the evening stars and in the morning sunlight as it suffuses the earth and the trees with golden light. I hear you in the call of the wind. May your spirits be woven back into the fabric of the universe and live on for eternity.

For innocence lost…

…all over the world.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

– Mary Elizabeth Frye
