Perfect Poetry

A few days after Evie’s death in a fire, MBE sent me a poem that was absolutely perfect in the moment.  It is written by a poet and teacher from the Southwest named Darshan.  It reads:

There is nothing like

the burning bridge

behind You

to Illuminate

the road Ahead.

In light of what had happened to Evie, I cried buckets when I read that.

Tonight MBE shared another one of Darshan’s poems with me that speaks to exactly where I am in the moment.  It reads:

The teacher

who does not

See You As God

…is not your Teacher.


I have an update to share after last night’s Pity Party, however I am a bit too sleepy to give the subject its full due, so I will wait until tomorrow.

Until then, here’s are two pictures of The Best Baby In The World from tonight.

    Thought of you so often this afternoon and was not able to carve out an uninterrupted time to call you….. even if you may have been working and couldn’t talk anyway… but still felt so connected and wanted to call. maybe soon?

    Love you!
