896 : Sim Ball (guffaw)

My previous post 895 on symbols, was post a conversation I had with a dearie yesterday, a talk we had post the dearie having lost something which was classified  as “important”.

Its so easy for me to preach, “ finally what's lost is a “symbol”, ignore the trifles”. Its very easy for me to make light of what could essentially be a very large personal loss.

What I wanted to clarify is, I hope I never end up reducing “grief”, as “tears shed on a meaningless symbol”, “grief” is intensely personal and usually very important.

Symbols are (also) very important, as important as we want to make them out to be, and if they are important enough for us to grieve for their loss, then we most definitely must (and be allowed to).

(From Jesus He Loves Me, by Genesis

Won’t find me practicing what I am preaching,
Won’t find me making no sacrifice
But I can get you a pocket full of miracles,
If you promise to be good, try to be nice,
God will take good care of you,
Just do as I say, don't do as I do

A LOUD GUFFAW :-) The joke is on me )
