Honoring the Memory of a Friend
Today marks the one year anniversary of the passing of our dear, sweet friend, Ken Honard. I wrote about him here.
As I reread that post, it struck me how much his life and his passing have affected my own life.
I promised in that post to honor him by more fully living this life I have been given. I promised, in his memory, to wear more glitter and to not avoid adventure and risk.
I am proud to say I have kept my promise and that I have done so beyond my wildest dreams.
That post was written mere days before I had my epiphany on a dance floor.
It goes to prove the Rumi quote true, doesn't it? That cracks in everything, including our hearts, is where the light gets in.
That crack left by the seismic activity that was his passing let in the light that warmed the seed that had been lying dormant in my heart for far too long. That little seed was able to finally sprout. That seed that was my True and Real Life. That seed that was Happiness and Bliss and Joy.
Thank you, Ken, for my Sparkling Life.
