  •  Dearest Kaili... (5+ / 0-)

    Someone sent me today this quote from St. Augustine...

    "Love is a temporary madness.It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two."

    -St. Augustine

    The beautiful mandala below is, to me, a perfect representation of the love you describe for Mac. What a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to your Beloved. The tears are running down my cheeks as I write this. Know that your friends and admirers on Daily Kos share in your grief and are so grateful that you shared a love so profound with us.
