That day... that moment... when your soul left your body, I knew.
We will no longer walk together along the beach
...hearing the sounds of nature around us,
enjoying a contented peaceful togetherness.
Many souls joined you that day.
As Hurricane Katrina blew in,
my best friend drifted free.
Shall I scream? ...or cry? ...perhaps wring my hands in despair?
...or wallow in the muddy substance of self-pity, mourning my loss?
No! I will celebrate the release of your beautiful soul...
...from it's prison of muscle, skin and bone...
...to the freedom of God's universe!

One year ago today...
...my life changed forever when my partner of 50 years died. This past year was one of adjustment... of learning... and phasing into a whole new way of life. I do not like it; I do not dislike it. I accept it. Yesterday I wrote my thoughts in his remembrance. I titled it Anniversary.
