the heart, the mind, the spirit and the soul. as dust
Beautiful mysterious picture Nan—the lasting hard physical “being” in focus…as grey ashes.
The loss so terrifying but made beautiful in this picture.
Where will you keep/leave Jesse’s ashes here on earth?
Thanks Mar and Barb for your thoughts and questions. I invite anyone who visits here to add their own thoughts on death and burial–pet, human, loved one. I have been fascinated by the weight of Jesse’s ashes–how they have substance–how they do not melt in the rain–but hold up (at my back door.)
Personally, I am still unsure about whether I want to be cremated or buried or left for a “natural decomposition.” Jesse’s death is helping me to confront my own death, my potential “ashes”–and what it all means. Every time I walk in Huber Woods or walk in my back yard, I feel Jesse is with me. I carry her with me, when I am aware. What does burial/death mean? Aren’t our loved ones always with us? In death and in life? Please post your own art/thoughts in late bloomers or here…I would love to hear about your experience.
