Comment Today for A.D.T, C.J. & for All The Posts I Didn't See, Deleted In the Ray of Day & Other Ironic Points of Light

Lorna Dee Cervantes said...

So sorry about your recent loss. I remember a year of deep grief, of watching the plants die, the mail stack up & scatter, nothing to do but stare into the vacuum of me and a good book. Philosophy, mostly, the entire football team of Western Civ., Pedagogy of the Oppressed; the blank comfort of natural history magazines, studies of wolves; the ironic stare of vacant shelves, packed books & the yawn of empty boxes. Not talking for days to a soul, the perverse pleasure in arranging my life so that is so. I know. Every grief is splintered, layered. Why I find comfort in a coat of paint, in looking in on Stanley's hand-hewn life, the photos of poetry embossed in the gray matter with love, and smiling: "Live in the layers!" Yes, read. That's how I ended up with an ABD in History of Consciousness. Yes, go to the Ironic Points of Light. You know the way. Best to you & yours, and love.
