Last week I attended the funeral of a girl who was my age, 39. Jodi and I grew up together. We lived next door to each other as children, from when I moved into my house right before kindergarten until we left for college.

Touching Death: Mourning Physically through Burial

Yet in the end we were very satisfied with how our own bodies and hearts were able to be involved in our soul and mind's mourning process. Opening the Earth. I vividly remember going to my first wake as a very young child.

After my daughter’s death, I try to lead a mostly normal life, but then there are the encounters that remind me of how fragile I still am.

Judith van Praag's curator insight, October 22, 2013 10:34 AM

My heart goes out to the author. I recognize all those moments, the wrong words, the lack of words, the awkward moments when a person doesn't know, because he or she misunderstood the cards we sent around. 
No matter that it was long ago for us to lose our baby girl —she would've been nearly 21 now— each passing year other people's living children are the reminder of what we were or are missing. Grief is never ending, the sharp edges soften, but the scar will always be there, and sometimes there's still a pang of hurt, even so many years later.
K.A. Leddy's dance teacher Lin's wordless acknowledgement brings back the memory of running into a colleague, and how her hug, the tears in both her and my eyes made us one for a moment, each moved by the other. That moment of --you am I am you-- that's reached without a word.


To Ellen and Every Other

Through me you move

as I move through you

our tears mingle

when our paths cross

you am I am you

when our paths cross

our tears mingle

as you move through me

through you I move
