Letting Go.

A woman turned the ashes of her daughter into a diamond after she died of leukemia (See MSNBC). It first struck me as impossible when I first read the news in The New Paper. Genial thought it was disgusting to be carrying your daughter around after her death.

One can empathise with the mother. It was the last wishes of young Hannah Rowley. She was just 8 years old. At first I thought it was kind of romantic to have your loved one so close to you even after death.

Right now, I think it's so pointless to hold on to someone when everything else is gone. Like the observation of a ritual which everyone has forgotten the meaning to.

Perhaps closure is best found in absence and the allowing of memories to fade with time...
