Ever since you passed over, I’ve been seeing you in the form of rabbits out on the trail. You show up to race me…Now, that I’ve been running the track, I’ve been seriously missing seeing you in your rabbit form…Thinking of you, Chadd, while I am also making connections through technology…Woke up this morning and listened to the eulogy I wrote for you. Another way to be keep you close. Love you!
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.
