Another 4.5 miles around the lake. Ran in the rain this morning. Saw Chadd in all God's beauty. I made two cairns along the trail for Chadd. Two sacred memorials for Chadd. I want him to stay close.
Ran the lake today. While I was out there, I thought of my nephew, Chadd. I thought how I saw that Red Robin in the woods behind the house where he lived with his parents in Columbia South Carolina. Chadd's spirit was close that weekend. And I feel he is very close now.
This is a conversation with my nephew, who transitioned from this earth at the age of 30 years old. I need to process this new state of being in the world and my family. Chadd is no longer here with us. These haiku are meditations and prayers. I am chanting for my nephew's spirit to stay close.
