A bit of wisdom today
The music and words are from Graceful Passages.
I found it when I was helping my friend, Kip, approach the end of his life.
In his final few days, I would sit with him in the hospital, put headphones on his ears and start the CD.
At one point, Kip began to cry, so I lifted the headphones and asked if he would prefer to hear something else, something less emotional for him.
I didn’t want to force additional sadness upon him.
Without speaking, he took the headphone I had lifted and replaced it onto his ear, and we sat and cried together.
