“It’s so beautiful I want to die.” I kept saying that to my mom this weekend.
I feel the world tugging at my heart in a million different ways, filling it and emptying it simultaneously. Summer time makes me sad in the sweetest of ways, all the beauty of the Northwest that comes so quickly, so abruptly as we change from a cold winter to a blooming summer, it all tugs at my heart and makes me so glad to be alive I literally feel so sad it all ends again.
Being out in the Oregon desert with Elli and seeing these bones and remembering the vastness and harshness and sternness and power of the Earth was good for me. It reminded me of my place in this world, how I am like what came before, and I will be like what lies ahead.
To sum it up, as my favorite folk singers sang for me live this weekend: “I want to grow old, without the pain, give my body back to the Earth and not complain.”
