Nothing Loved is Ever Lost

2020 has sucked.

It has really sucked.

I lost my mom in June.

Lost my mother in-law in September.

And lost Miss Kitty, who was 20 years young, this week.

“The earth will never be the same again
Rock, water, tree, iron, share this greif
As distant stars participate in the pain.


A candle snuffed, a falling star or leaf,
A dolphin death, O this particular loss
A Heaven-mourned; for if no angel cried
If this small one was tossed away as dross,
The very galaxies would have lied.


How shall we sing our love’s song now
In this strange land where all are born to die?


Each tree and leaf and star show how
The universe is part of this one cry,
Every life is noted and is cherished,
and nothing loved is ever lost or perished.”

― Madeleine L’Engle, A Ring of Endless Light

  1. My thoughts are with you, even if our blogging ships only briefly pass each other in the night. 2020 will not be remembered fondly, globally or personally. Too much, all at once…
