RECONSTELLATING

On the afternoon of my last blog posting, JUne 8,  I received a phone call that my brother, 66, had passed away suddenly of cardiac arrest.

I began immediately to let people know at the request of his family. Six hours later, I was making reservations to fly to St. John's in two days.

Now, two months later, I am coming out of that shock and the loss of a second brother in a couple of years. The other was even younger, 59 years old.

It has taken all these weeks of reconstellating the world without my brother. I have felt inner shifting going on, I have felt deep black chasms of loss, I have felt the nearer pull of my own death coming nearer, as it does, every second. I have felt the physical closeness of my two brothers standing behind me, like two wings of guidance and protection.

Death really does erase whatever twistings and turnings a life history has contained. It strips away all the unnecessary past histories, and offers a clean slate of memory burning only with the essence of a person. A soul lives on - in cleansed presence and a small candle flame of light.

I have browsed your comments on these books at various times and came back again now to be inspired to round out my selection for my 'winter reading'.

I like these very much. The spirals amid stars and land especially feel like pure whimsy and joy. Black paper and gel pens, you say?.....
