can you really go back?

art work by LLGriffin 2021

The journey to make my way, at first took me away from my home, but then lead me back to where I started. Which may not be the physical place I started from but the hope is that I have come back to myself and have gained wisdom along the way.

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from. – T. S. Eliot


As you start to walk on the way, the way appears – Rumi


Souls tend to go back to who feels like home – NR Hart

Our Grief and it’s different paths

We all grief differently and here is another perspective from a Tedx Talk by Aarti Patil.

From Tedx Talks – Grief is a difficult, and long process but it is not the same for everyone. It’s a unique path that is different for each and every person. Aarti Patil is a Nursing and Public Health major at the University of Texas at Arlington. As the daughter and the sister of UTA alumni, Aarti has immersed herself in her Maverick pride through her involvement in the MavElite Tour Guides, Freshmen Leaders on Campus, Maverick Mentors, and the UTA Ambassadors. Aarti is eternally grateful to her father, Uday, and her sister, Devika, for their immense support and love. A part from being a full-time student, Aarti continues to pursue her part-time air guitar career.

If I Die Young

 

From NPR – Parents Lose Their Daughter And Their Life Savings To Opioids

Song played at funeral by The Band Perry 

If I die young, bury me in satin. Lay me down on a bed of roses. Sink me in the river.

Lord, make me a rainbow. I’ll shine down on my mother. She’ll know I’m safe with you when she stands under my colors.
