Transform It Into Remembrance

Quotes and Notes #194, May 22

“Grief starts to become indulgent, and it doesn’t serve anyone, and it’s painful. But if you transform it into remembrance, then you’re magnifying the person you lost and also giving something of that person to other people so they can experience something of that person.”—Patti Smith—

Memorial day arrives toward the end of May. This is a wonderful concept, that of remembrance and it sets aside a special day just to remind us to focus for a while on some of the wonderful people who are no longer with us.

There are those in my past whom I remember with a joy of having known them—those who had a profound effect in my life and development. I will visit them this weekend and then again, and again.

There are those of whom I have read or otherwise learned who worked to make the world a better place, who helped to form our wonderful country. Remembering them will allow us to somehow live a small part of their lives.
Memorial Day is good

And share a smile. It will make you memorable.
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz
“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
