B**g Imitates Life- and Death

Sex and love and grief and death -(these are) the things that make us and undo us, create and destroy, how we breed and disappear and the emotional context that surrounds these events.

The good death, good grief, good funerals come from keeping the vigils, from bearing our burdens honorably, from honest witness and remembrance. They come from going the distance with the ones we love.

  5. Sad times. Lovely words.

  6. That’s strange; I thought this might be for Gene–but wasn’t sure. What a fine man.
