Quote: Loss

"Your absence has gone through me like thread through a needle. Everything I do is stitched with its color."

-W.S. Merwin

I found this quote while searching for a simple way to acknowledge the anniversary of September 11th. For many people, on a personal level and even more on a psychological level, the events of that day triggered immense feelings of loss, which still color their daily lives. I chose this quote because I believe it suggests that living with loss can become bearable and even beautiful, depending upon what we choose to stitch and how we choose to honor those we lost. May their positive qualities live on by coloring our lives with love, courage, compassion and healing.
