A non-anniversary Wryku

Life is linear

From one end to the other

Going with the flow


Anniversaries are thought of by some to be the closing of a circle.  I think they're milestones along one journey.  Life is linear.  That's the observation I made to one of my beloved sisters on the first anniversary of our Mom's passing.  Just because some dude named Greg took some other guy Julian's calendar and changed it, doesn't mean that anniversaries are reruns.  They're not. 

But sometimes you have to stop.  You can't just let the days slip by.  Thursday is such a day for me.  The birth of my oldest child.  And 10 years later, the death of one of my dearest friends. 

Jeff, wherever you are, I'm thankful so often to think about you, remember, and wonder...  What the hell did Abe Lincoln and JFK have to say?!?  Do you guys hang out??

Oh, and I almost forgot:  What's the deal with crop circles... and is Morgan Freeman really God?

Call me.

I love this post. I'm sorry about the passing of your friend and your mother. I lost my sister in August from Altzheimer's (she was born with Down Syndrome and lived a long 47 years before she passed) and it has been especially hard for my parents. I am alone to carry on the family name - or not since I took my husband's.

But enough about me. I think your friend IS conversing with Abraham Lincoln. And I think Britney will be o.k. I'm not sure about the linear-ness of life, but I'm not sure how I would describe it. I think it's more like a Slinky (that kids' toy which is nothing more than a big spring that goes up and down stairs.).

God speed.

I like the Slinky outlook. There are lots WORSE things you could say about life than, "For fun, it's a wonderful toy!" (Damn... eight syllables, not seven!)
