Rapture For One
With his figures calculated with biblical ties he hammered down a date when the truly spiritual will be lifted from the earth en mass through the pearly gates of heaven into the great beyond.
For Harold that day is today...for James that day was yesterday.
On May 20 2011 my dearest friend and partner was self - raptured with a hand gun.
If the definition of rapture is to be lifted of lifes' burdens and become embraced in the light..then surely he was.
Knowing this is enough.
Knowing he is in a better place is enough.
Knowing he is finally free is enough.
Now he watches us .. as we go through our daily struggles - battling our petty demons - running our hamster wheel marathons, while postponing today by chasing tomorrow -
And smiles, his blue eyes burn with an inner fire... mixed with sadness and sorrow...
Steeped in love.
"You guys just don't get it." Is what he says.
You're right Jim...most of us never get it.
See you next time around.
Wait for me.
