"I have been more outrageous and more alone and more courageous than the world has known. Passerby, my heart is like your own."

Blurry Eyes & Heavy Heart

I’ve been reading blogs all day.  I’m impressed at the depth of thought and expression of so many that I read..  My heart goes out to each and every one, especially to those who have suffered loss, or the threat of loss.

It would be a miracle if someone my age had not experienced loss, so I can relate to the stories.  I’ve lost two sons and two husbands and many other loved ones. And when I read about other’ grief, it brings up my own.  I grieve for them and I grieve for me, and especially for those who died before they should have.  The younger ones.    Suicide.  Cancer.  Dark days and nights.  Such suffering.  Too much to bear.

  1. I know what you mean, oldsunbird–and thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog. There’s a lot of suffering out there, but I just try to focus on how much I do have, and try to help others who have been less fortunate. I guess that’s all any of us can do.
