au revoir

a sad day in bras and ranties land, as we took time to celebrate and bid adieu to a dear loved one. while a comforting (and extremely rare) occasion for a big familial get-together, the proximity of family in fact only had us thinking about the concept of solitude.

no doubt life is enriched by the presence of love, both for and from other persons. emotion and empathy are central components of our souls – and of humanity. but we can’t help but wonder if it isn’t often forgotten that life is a sweet little journey one really does take alone, in solitude and introspection. not bad.

your entrance, your exit, and everything in between is a solo, my pretty. live it well.
will miss you.
