Vigil. August 2021

Vigil. August 2021

Sitting in vigil is a hard blessing.

It is not without struggle, to find the discipline to be present in the moment and to the moment; not distracted by thoughts, roiling emotions and ordinary distractions. Relinquishing any impulse for control.

Waiting, waiting, while time stands still and flows away all at once. Waiting for a loved one to transition – holding their hand until the moment when your paths diverge and you can no longer accompany them.

Gathering memories for comfort in the lonely times to come. Grief mists at the edge of vision, while building as a storm, crashing against the moment when it will break through as a surging wave.

The silence is heavy with tears and pulsing with love.

The grace of vigil is hard won
