this is a very ... deep, moving, special, insightful, a painful/real piece... i was sure you would come up with some wisdom amid the reality to share with the world and you've done a fine job of it here, mr. rebelhawke....
the likening of the journey to death as labor pains... the images here... the emotion behind it and the depth of this... it's really very well done.
i had also thought of the comparison between labor of birth and labor of death when my dad died... life comes full circle
i admire you for being able to write this so soon after his death... your words are like a photo of a time so precious, so hard, so real, so important
thanks for sharing this.
just me, d
