Nowhere I tell you.
You know, grief and loss are some interesting things.
Or rather, that moment is interesting when they smack you like a mac truck out the middle of nowhere.
Did you feel that?!
Where the heck did that come from??!!
The middle of nowhere, that is where.
Well, I guess not quite exactly.
There I was today, in my office. At my desk. In the middle of the long afternoon on an innocent Wednesday. Just working away doing my thing while listening to music.
Then all of a sudden…this song comes on.
And then, BOOM!
I was smacked in the face and straight through to the heart. It all almost came right out my eyes, but it got lodged right there in my throat, above my chest, in a knot for a good ten minutes. Practically choking me.
And this had nothing to do with Merle Haggard (although, yes, that is sad too) and everything to do with the memory of my grandfather.
No Sir, he will never be gone. He lives on in us in so many ways.
Man oh man. That was exhausting! Excuse me while I go bawl my eyes out. Be back later.
Has that ever happened to you? Seemingly out of the blue?
I told you I get this way this time of year.
Walk in love, dear readers.
