Vivid imagination or a glimpse into the other? Rather than focusing on loved ones not being here to celebrate with us, turning it around. Broadening the perspective. Picturing their spirits having an amazing time of it where they are. Seeing the possibility of parallel celebrations. Their experience filled with such depth and beauty. They occasionally pausing to look over at us with loving hearts. Wishing we could be there with them to feel that magnificence. Reminding themselves that for now, this is how it must be. That we all take turns moving back and forth between these versions. Taking great care not to diminish the joyfulness of their festivities. Understanding how disrespectful that would be.
