I spent the morning with a friend as her beloved dog peacefully died.
Everyone was calm and helpful and incredibly sad.

And yet when I drove home along the Carmel Highland coast the hills, trees, ocean shimmered with brightness, Some how death clears out the rubbish in my mind and I can see how beautiful the world actually is.

I wish the shimmer would last longer.

i know what you mean, kathy. Death has a way of stripping things down to the essential... and everything glows.
