“Aunt Petunia burst into tears. Hestia Jones gave her an approving look that changed to outrage as Aunt Petunia ran forward and embraced Dudley rather than Harry.

'But he hadn't said thank you at all!' said Hestia indignantly. 'He only said he didn't think Harry was a waste of space!'
'Yeah, but coming from Dudley that's like "I love you.”

“I have drunk the night
and swallowed the stars.
I am dancing with abandon
and singing with rapture.
There is not a thing I do not love.
There is not a person I have not forgiven.

I feel a universe of light.
Tonight, I am with old friends
and we are returning home.
The moon is our witness.”

“Do not go to my grave.
Mary knows, I am not there.
Look for me in between pages
and on people’s lips.

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.”

Kate McGahan
“The angels came to tell me what I could expect and how to get where I needed to go. I was reassured that I would not have to cross the Bridge alone. There were so many things I did not yet know. I could feel my mental clarity leaving. I fixed my gaze upon her. I watched her as I left. It was like shutting the door of a beloved home for the last time. Like closing up camp for the season. One last look at the ocean before you must leave it behind with hopes of return but with no guarantee. You eventually have to turn away and look the other direction so that you can see where it is you are going.”
Kate McGahan, Jack McAfghan: Return from Rainbow Bridge: An Afterlife Story of Loss, Love and Renewal

“Let me go is a suppliant unit of words looming with urgency as if it were a dangling, drooping leaf about to fall in summer or a querulous song of a caged bird wishing to spread its wings onto the cerulean sky. (Danny Castillones Sillada, The Phenomenology of ‘Let Me Go’)”
Danny Castillones Sillada

“Let me go,’ when earnestly spoken, punctures a tender hole in the soul with regret and sorrow, in contrast to the perniciously “I hate you” or “I don’t love you anymore” that can inflame a repulsive feeling of anger, denial, and resentment. (Danny Castillones Sillada, The Phenomenology of ‘Let Me Go’)”
Danny Castillones Sillada

“My mother -
Contained God itself
A tarnished look of pain
A hand clutching her heart
A love we can not name
A fog or a smoke
An infinite thirst for life
(But the wing is dead under the frost.)

My mother -
Is an uncertain form
She gets lost when she walks
And we sit in the valley
And I shelter her to my love
My mother
Is a broken sky
That exhales day and night
Its beauty.

My mother -
Is the scent of a hundred roses
And the suffering of so many things
My mother
Is no more than a dream - I suppose
Of those who are said lips closed
And behind her veil
She sleeps - my mother -
And her star
Do not doubt anymore of its light.”
Emmanuelle Soni-Dessaigne

whether that moment was
immensely hurtful or was
awfully affectionate for me.”

Jerry Pinto
“And then Em too would die and I would be alone and the whole world would be different. I had no idea how, but it would, because I would finally have space to myself and then I could exercise the choice to do as I pleased and when I pleased instead of waiting for a stolen moment in the busy life of this 1BHK.
And now the world expanded as people left the flat. As we opened the door together, I discovered departures make the world smaller, slighter, less significant.”
Jerry Pinto, Em and The Big Hoom

Craig D. Lounsbrough
