Kathy Hodgson At Rest

ImageBy honored men she had been carried to the earth.

ImageThe sun beat down on those who had now gone as far with dear Kathy Hodgson as was possible. “This is the day she lived for,” her treasured cousin spoke as we huddled and whispered and moved about.

Image

Elusive. As absurd to think of holding the tail of a wind as to hope to find words to soothe the grief.

ImageA small mark, a tiny plot. Impossible to encase such a life.

Image

ImageColleagues and friends. Some have traveled from far points across the country because they loved her.

ImageAnd so it is finished. Except that only now has life begun for her. Mysterious. Sure.

And for us life continues to move, steadily, unstoppable. And one day, we too, will be finished.
