Orion Nebula 2020
Past the tremendous eternal abyss of space, somewhere, is an island that lives without time or boundary. Ruled by a benevolent creator, it is the paradise we are called home to when our time on this planet has finished. It is where my Dad has finally reunited with my Mom, brothers, and sister.
As I search the endless night sky in wonder at the beauty surrounding our small blue-green marble, I often ponder where that island is. And then it occurs to me that if I let go of the limitations of my mind and imagine the power of an omnipresent lord, I will have the answer. It exists everywhere, in everything, in a dimension that is both separate and always here. While I cannot touch this wondrous world where those that have passed now reside, my soul can. In my soul, so long as I remember, I am with them all.
Today I fly to New York to lay his remains to rest. But that is just the part of him that existed here. Through my sadness and grief, I must try to remember that the better part of him is free of the pain, free of the confusion, and free of the longing for those who traveled ahead of him.
I remain his scribe.
