there must be an instructional video for this

Back from Edmonton and Wendy's Goodbye feeling a little different. Tentatively, quietly wanting to start living. A little out of practice, as I'm excellent at burrowing. You can't help but feel a little shamed when you've seen people undertake the business of grieving and honouring in earnest. There's something to be learned about respect in that - respect for life, self, and the people you let into your world. I've always erred on the side of not taking myself too seriously. But perhaps a little too far on that side. Because as hilarious as life is, it's also the biggest gift. Letting it slide past is sort of like saying, 'yeah thanks, whatever' for the painstakingly handmade gift given to you by someone who really, really loves you.
