All Souls Day

Today is All Souls Day, on which some Christian traditions pause to call to mind "the faithful departed". Whatever our faith or none, there is something intrinsically good about pausing to remember, with gratitude, those we have loved and lost, to grieve where we need to grieve, and to discover new strength and new hope for our own continuing lives.

A poemy/non-religious prayery/meditationy thingy by me...

Take a moment
Light a candle
Plant a flower bulb
Shed a tear
Laugh out loud
Rage against injustice
Whatever you need to be or to do
Only remember
Put back together, if for a fleeting moment
And then
Honour those who have gone before
By living
By loving
By laughing
A little more intentionally
And every day
