pondering my role in a bigger story

farewell, my friend

one of my wise people passed away this morning.

yes, without some sort of divine intervention, we knew it was coming. no, i didn't think it would be today. and it's totally jacking with my faith in that how-much-does-one-family-have-to-take kind of way.

i know this doesn't mean that God has disappeared from the scene altogether, but it kinda seems like it. and i'm not in the mood for a "she's better off" lecture at the moment. maybe i'll post later about the huge hole that's left in our hearts.

right now, all i can think about is Kate Campbell's song, How Much Can One Heart Hold?

So sorry about your sadness and the hole in your heart. The vortex is no fun, but you already know that. Love you.

Bless your dear heart Amy. I know how this feels. The hole never goes away. But it will get filled up in the future, after it's healed.
