  • Bereavement of a child exceeds drowning. It is worse than the loss of my own breath. When I placed my self, my heart, my being, outside my body, within the body of another, nothing is so risky. Crayons, paint, dirt, chalk, sand, misplaced toy make up....these are the colors of littleness. Without them...i find no color. So suspicion of a rainbow...separated from it's only sensible. Never believe in color in the dark. It is only imagination. Color requires light. It is a basic rule of physics.
