Death Pretending To Be Life

Daily Draw: Tarot of the Spirit ~ Death

"bare bones, ready to begin again"  Eakins

The living go on, taking the loss in like water takes in a stone.
Busy work takes over. Arrangements made, schedules organized, family chess pieces move, wishes and wills may or may not play a part.

But what is that limbo called when no one knows you are gone?
I've just finished Ghost Soldiers by Hampton Sides, the story of soldiers who survived the Bataan March. Death, clutching and claiming thousands upon thousands. Dead men walking, Death pretending to be life, years of it.

How can I complain about Anything?

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
