My dad is a really great writer and a really great story teller, so whenever somebody in our family dies, he gives the eulogy. He and I were just out by the fire pit in our backyard chatting about the eulogies he’s given, and the importance of funerals and the good priests and bad priests we’ve dealt with, and the good moments and bad moments of the last days of illness, and death, and religion, and life. It was a good conversation, and it gave me a moment to reflect on the many stages of grief and the healing process that seems so daunting and miserable and pointless and endless until, one day, you find yourself on the other side of it.
At the end of our conversation he went in the house to clean up and change, and I checked facebook on my phone and found out that a childhood friend’s father (who, incidentally, has the same exact name as my dad) had passed away early this morning after the sun had risen.
Jacqui and I haven’t spoken since we were very, very young, so it would be inappropriate for me to say anything to her now, but grief can feel like an oppressive and stunting thing and in the coming months or years I wish for her to find the peace that I felt this afternoon as I reflected on the people who once were here with me, but now are not.

"

O Captain! My Captain! our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:

But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
O Captain! My Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up - for you the flag is flung - for you the bugle trills;
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths - for you the shores a-crowding;
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;

Here captain! dear father!
This arm beneath your head;
It is some dream that on the deck,
You’ve fallen cold and dead.
My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still;
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will;
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done;
From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won;

Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells!
But I, with mournful tread,
Walk the deck my captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

"
Walt Whitman in 1865 (via travellerintime)

Q & A

Do you know any other languages?

A bit, yeah! I’m not fluent AT ALL, but I’m taking ASL at school for my second language requirement at the U. That’s probably the language I know the most of, and then I know a little spanish from high school. I can read & pronounce some middle english lol does that count? Other than that it’s just little phrases and words like “happy birthday” in Russian, and “kisses!” in Bulgarian.
