when he shall die, take him and cut him out in little stars

April 12, 2010


i went to a funeral yesterday……

the buddhist leader of our headquarters died last week….

i wasn’t very close to her so wasn’t sure if i was going to go or not…

i did and i’m really glad i did….

the service was at the chelsea town hall and well attended…

seeing the coffin freaked  me out a bit just thinking she was in there…

i’ve only been to three funerals in total..

it was very moving…

joni mitchells blue album playing at the beginning…

one of my favorite singers and obviously hers too…

sunlight streamed through the entire time to just light up her coffin..

after the people i was with wanted to attend the crematorium service…

i didn’t want too….. so stayed outside in the sun….

i didn’t feel close enough to be in there…

the hearse drivers waved to me as they drove off…

after i briefly attended the reception…

it was PACKED….no room to move practically…

i didn’t want to drink….

caught up with people i haven’t seen for a while and then walked home.

chilled….and did yoga.
