Patti Smith: On Loss
YouTube Video Upload
I search for answers from others who have suffered loss.
The video above, I uploaded with Patti Smith talking about loss was comforting. I feel this way too about communicating and feeling those who we have loved after they have passed away.
Patti Smith's quote below, feels a bit brutal yet it's honest and direct, which I admire about her.
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.
This is what I feel I am trying to do with my writing, to share about Scott and all the people and animals who I have lost on this Earth, and who are still with me as I carry them along with me on this journey in my heart and within my spirit and soul and who I weave through out my stories here on this blog.
