Sorry I have been missing for a month and then some. I will visit you all in turn to see what's been happening with your blogs!
For the record, I have been writing every day but I haven't had the time to type up any poems from my journal. My father has been under the weather with a bad case of the flu, then bad pertussis from said flu, then bronchitis, and then we found that his flu meds were clashing with his heart meds. He was in hospital for half a month and he is home now and finally recovering. A slow yet steady convalescence.
Dad's illness made me consider our (im)mortality all over again, and if you'd like to ponder along silently with me, here is an excerpt from the Upanishad. I feel it has such poignant meaning, that whatever your faith or belief system, we are indeed stardust.
"From delusion lead me to truth,
From darkness lead me to light,
From death lead me to immortality."
- Brihadaranyaka Upanishad -
