Six Feet Under, this ain't

It's always an awkward experience preparing for a funeral. Trying to capture and honour a life in mere service of worship is beyond me. That's when the divine needs to move and flow in and around the spaces of our human attempts to grieve and understand.

The most surreal moment of revelation for me occurs when this person, this life, becomes a mere file on my computer. At that moment when I hit "save" (no pun intended!) and type in the name, that's when it dawns on me that s/he's really and truly dead. Certainly gives new meaning to Ghost in the Machine....
