Strange Grief

I had an overwhelming sense of grief over the weekend, which I thought was due to the recent death of my dog.  Then a friend reminded me of the date and I realised it was the anniversary of the passing of my very good friend, teacher, healer and mentor.  I’m not very good at remembering dates, but somehow our bodies or emotional body remembers the passing and we slip into grief.  Again.  And it feels as strong as it was in the beginning.  Recognition of what grief I was feeling did create a shift and now the candles are lit in remembrance and gratitude having known this wonderful person.

And some candles for my beautiful boy as well.
