  1. Elliott, RIP.
    I offer these words of solace to Elliott’s family, from the great Iris poet Sir John O’Donohue.

    “Though we need to weep your loss,
    You dwell in that safe place in our hearts,
    Where no storm or night or pain can reach you.
    Your love was like the dawn
    Brightening over our lives
    Awakening beneath the dark
    A further adventure of color.
    The sound of your voice
    Found for us
    A new music
    That brightened everything.
    Whatever you enfolded in your gaze
    Quickened in the joy of its being
    You placed smiles like flowers
    On the altar of the heart.
    Your mind always sparkled
    With wonder at things.
    Though your days here were brief,
    Your spirit was live, awake, complete.
    We look towards each other no longer
    From the old distance of our names;
    Now you dwell inside the rhythm of breath,
    As close to us as we are to ourselves.
    Though we cannot see you with outward eyes,
    We know our soul’s gaze is upon your face,
    Smiling back at us from within everything
    To which we bring our best refinement.
    Let us not look for you only in memory,
    Where we would grow lonely without you
    You would want us to find you in presence,
    Beside us when beauty brightens,
    When kindness glows
    And music echoes eternal tones.
    When orchids brighten the earth,
    Darkest winter has turned to spring;
    May this dark grief flower with hope
    In every heart that loves you.
    May you continue to inspire us:
    To enter each day with a generous heart.
    To serve the call of courage and love
    Until we see your beautiful face again
    In that land where there is no more separation,
    Where all tears will be wiped from our mind,
    And where we will never lose you again.”
    – John O’Donohue
