She seemed so big, so divinely large

I spent the last six months of my mother’s life with her in a process of witnessing the layers of dying in a way now that I cherish as sacred and precious. Such a privilege to be able to be a part of such an enormous moment. When the talks and laughter and tears led to these final moments, what became so obvious to me is that she seemed so big, so divinely large — so much bigger than her small and diminished body. So much more — like a newborn ready to be realized as something “next.”

Thank you for the learning — and thank you for the honour.
