It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

A Friend’s Passing

July 9th, 2008 · 8 Comments

My friend Deborah (in white) with my Mom, my brother Bob, and I during better times.

A dear friend of mine passed away and I find it hard to believe that she’s been gone a full year.  There are moments, especially when I’m driving, that I think, can she truly be gone?  Or I’ll talk to her in my mind and it’s almost as if I can hear her voice and I know just what she would say if she was sitting there right next to me.

I didn’t get a chance to see her before she died.   I was in Mexico for a wedding at the time; she had been in Paris with her daughter and her grand-daughter only weeks before.  Who would have thought that I would only get to attend her funeral.  I know I didn’t.

I wrote a poem that I read at her service and I like to think that she is “home” resting, and having a wonderful time before she takes the journey once again back to this schoolroom we call Earth.

Maya Muses: For once, there’s not much more I can add except that I miss you my friend.

    A beautiful poem,Lynn!
    I know the feeling,I know what you mean..

    I have been there and came back…
    I will never be afraid of death again..
    The thing is to live life to the fullest…

    I carry my friends in my heart,wherever they are…
    In this life, or somewhere where I can’t follow…
    Until I make the same journey myself…

    Mia, are you saying what I think you’re saying(!)…. that you’ve had a near-death experience!? If it’s true, I would love to hear about it, (that is if it’s not too personal and you’d rather not talk about it.)

    By the way, thanks for the compliment about my poem!

    lt’s hard to believe it’s already one year. I still miss her a lot. I am very happy she got the chance to show her daughter and grand-daughter Paris before her departure.

    I think that’s what kept her going toward the end.
