Wow, it has been forever since I’ve done an “I Comment Therefore I Am” post. The idea is to put together a post from comments I’ve left on other blogs or comments that have been left on mine because much of the beauty of blogging is wrapped up in the comments.
Today, I have only one comment to share. I was visiting the blog of someone I consider a friend and mentor. He is a professor, plawright, poet, director, producer, musician, and just a good human being. His writing is beautiful and it always stirs up emotions and memories for me. His poem, Abuela In the Backyard made me think of the difficult relationship I had with my own grandmother and how that relationship did not end when she died. Here’s what I shared…
I have a better relationship with my grandmother now that she’s passed than when she was alive. She comes to me in dreams and I see things about her that I was blind to when she was alive. The first time she came to me she sang, “Volver,Volver” and I think I was able to forgive her for not being who I wanted her to be.
Do me a favor, please visit my friend and show him some comment or follow love. You won’t be sorry and I’ll be very grateful. His beautiful words live at Unrequited Folk: Conboy Poetry.
