and one to grow on:
There are events in our lives that are so big, a flash is created causing a negative image to remain in our memories. Like a photograph. A day where, when it appears on the calendar again, we all know where we were. We can recall the day with slide show precision. What we wore when we found out. Where we were when we heard the news. Who we were with. What they were wearing when we saw them “before”. When the anniversary of these big days roll back around we recount our versions of the day in catharsis. We find comfort in the coming together and remembering. If we were unsure of our place in the mourning at the time of the loss, we have found some footing in these twelve months. All these versions of the day create its history. When we come together with our colors we paint a mural of the day emblazoned in our collective memories. We find solace in the timeline. On this day the romance of who she was is lost. She is revealed as the perfectly flawed woman she was. It helps settle the peace because she is revealed not to be a martyr that we tend to build her up to be, but a mother, a daughter, a friend. A person who got up that morning and got her kids off to school but didn’t manage to make it home to them again.E
