The Soft Emptiness of a Liminal Place -Alethea Kehas

I am already missing her and she is not wholly gone. When I search for her presence, I find the soft emptiness of the liminal place. Holding. Waiting. I don’t want to think about grief, again. A prolonged letting go that takes me on a journey to uncomfortable landscapes. We grasp at the tangible only to discover that we will eventually reach the cliff of letting go, not knowing when we will arrive there.

And sometimes there is no liminal place to linger.

It is a test to step into the space of soft uncertainty and feel the soul cocooned between the life and death of the temporary vessel. I do not want to think about pain and heartache. Those sitting beside her, holding the space. Holding her hand. I do not want to think of the labored breath before it breaks free. Pain seems incredibly unfair for a life filled with such grace.

    Liminal place. Perfect description, Alethea… Wandering in and out of time and space trying to figure things out without the Awkward Questions, and this helps. Trying to uphold you and your process, Sue, with the walk in uncertainty. Knowing the appearance of normal in continuous posting is not the whole story makes it more unsettling. Sending love.
