When they say loss comes in “3’s” – they never mentioned that it comes, at times, as an unending current.

“The stars are not wanted now; put out every one, Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun, Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood; For nothing now can ever come to any good.” 
 – W.H. Auden

So many…way too many…. loved ones that are facing  life and death obstacles right now – and I can’t do a thing that concretely affects the final outcome.

However, I can feel guilt – that I’m healthy.  Or guilt for not having had that last luncheon or phone call or birthday cupcake…………..
