Yesterday, in a therapy group, somebody said, “We’re still alive.” Since that phrase felt very alive to me, I wrote it on my white board, where it still is.
I heard and wrote that shortly before I found out that Carrie Fisher was no longer alive, when I read this on Facebook: “We lost a Jedi.”
I still believe it’s important, every day, to remember we’re still alive, because eventually every one of us will be still.
Here‘s the best song for this post — Stephen Sondheim’s “I’m Still Here” from Carrie Fisher’s Postcards from the Edge:
I often sing that song when I walk around, still alive, and see scenes like this:
Which images are still alive, for you?
I’m very grateful we’re still alive as I thank all who helped me create this post and you — of course — for still being here.
You had me at ‘we’re still alive’. I will cling to that for as long as possible.
