Done . . . and not done yet . . .

The BeZine

photo-37-1I watched it all over my friend’s dear shoulder,
that time of living while dying and celebrating ~
like a garden snake ~ the shedding of the skin,
the detritus of material man with its hungers and
wild, woody creative soul, sketching ruby-jeweled
memories in sand to be blown like a Tibetan mandala
across Timelessness . . .

while he,

lone monk,


by systems on systems of hospital wiring, billing,
approvals, and laws around funerals and burials,
estates, plans, and proposals for headstones and
the where, when, and how of a memorial service,
the left-overs of his life to be sorted, stashed, stored
or sent to the right people in the right places.


… as though there had been nothing. No one.

Dedicated to everyone who is living with dying. That would be all of us.

    it made me smile….the video…and yes, even tear up a bit…
    we have a life to live while we have it…in spite of the challenges
    or health issues we are facing…regardless of whatever has so far kept us from it…its beautiful their friendship lasted that long as well…


  3. To make this meaningful, read the rest of the post and definitely check out the video. It will inspire and this is an early post for Monday Meanderings. Thank you, Jamie.
