Wendy Webb
“Before I lost my father, I never understood the rituals surrounding funerals: the wake, the service itself, the reception afterward,the dinners prepared by well-meaning friends and delivered in plastic containers, even the popular habit of making poster boards filled with photos of the dear departed. But now I know why we do those things. It's busywork, all of it. I had so much to take care of, so many arrangements to make, so many people to inform, I didn't have a moment to be engulfed by the ocean of grief that was lapping at my heels. Instead, I waded through the shallows, performing task after task, grateful to have duties to propel me forward.”
Wendy Webb, The Tale of Halcyon Crane

Mary knows, I am not there.

Do not go to my old house —
I am not in any of those places.
Look for me in your hearts
and greet me there.”
Kamand Kojouri
