:: dawn's pilgrimmage ::
Four of us gathered to commemorate the anniversary of Dawn Wicca's passing, on March 17, 2007.
Laurie Todd, Chris Ferguson-Cradler, Elizabeth Braithwaite and myself.
We all shared memories and perceptions, thinking of our dear life partner and friend.
I read aloud from my blog, shared pictures.
We also talked about why civilizations fail, or succeed as the case may be.
Chris, present at Tara's birth, has a new grandchild. Elizabeth's son is starting spring break, is in college. Laurie, our host and neighbor, employs Tara after school, and knew Dawn well before I did.
I took refuge in writing and walking today, did some cooking (those lentils again) and cleaning, other work. I thought much about the importance of community (sangha), of teachers. Dawn taught me a lot, more than I know.
