Laugh…

“If I am not allowed to laugh in heaven,
I don’t want to go there.”

Revisiting the Dead…

“The memory doesn’t bring our friends back so much as it
allows us to see them.
Perhaps to see them with a sudden and revealed clarity. Perhaps to see them as, frankly, we never saw them when they were with us.

And if we see, what we see is not merely a thing of memory, not just
the past but rather the present . . .

And, if we see, this is also not
a matter only of memory.

It stands before us with a sudden and revealed clarity.

Stands before us as our friends’ absent work – and as itself.

It is an
unexpected gift, an unexpected clear gift.”

– John Taggart
