Celebration of Life

The celebration of life service for my mom is rapidly approaching. My arms go up in a basketball defense stance – as if I could slow down time.

How does one sum up another’s life? All the days, interactions, dreams, passions, relationships? What do you say about another person when they have passed into eternity?

Sorting through paperwork and old letters has burned into me the conviction that we have incredibly shallow perceptions into who most people are. How often do we even try to understand another being?

It is hard work. We struggle to even know our own selves, how much more to try to know another person?

Remembering a life through photos,  endearing memories, and inspiring actions is better than nothing. Still, it is not easy… Storms
