TALKING ABOUT WHAT WE KNOW

Don't Ask A Question If You Don't Want The Answer

April 4, 2020

What comes next?
We all want to know.
And then we do....

In my corner of western Montana,
what comes next after the initial wave of a pandemic?
An earthquake!
On the last day of March.
My first. Our biggest:
6.5 on the Richter Magnitude Scale.
It rolled my chair and rocked my equilibrium.
And, of course, I went WHEW! and said...
Killer Bugs and Earth Shutters...
WHAT COMES NEXT?
…..

I now know the nano answer:
Flood and Death.
Rogue hot water and faulty supply lines seems dire
until death arrives.
Our first loss from Covid 19 in Missoula County,
and it touches my circle with ripples
that rip at the shoreline of so many lives.
So much to bear
so quickly.

Thank you to the Healers
who whispered
You Will Be Missed,
You Are Loved

into the ear of this gentle soul as he passed
without our good byes
into what happens
next.

Seems Trite To Say,
But It's All We Can Do
...Onward.

For my friend MK who embodies this sentiment:

Far better it is to have a stout heart always
and suffer one’s share of evils,
than to be ever fearing
what may happen.

— Herodotus
