Blessed are they that mourn

Hey, Jack Kerouac, I think of your mother:

"Admit the void; accept loss forever. Freedom in the use of symbolism comes from the capacity to experience loss. Wisdom is mourning; blessed are they that mourn.”

-- Jack Kerouac

You have a remarkable gift, I think, for weeding out these little bits of humanity to share. At the right time.

I love how Natalie Merchant sings that song: "And the tears she cried/she cried for none other."

Wishing you love in what must feel like a topsy-turvy time.
