"To be of use"
I recently read this poem at my dear friends' "Celebration of Life" ceremony. It was open mic night and we were encouraged to share about "Life, Death and the Tapestry in which we find ourselves." Katie - who has terminal cancer - was such a ferocious "worker" - someone who never wasted a moment. She knew there was work to be done. In that spirit - I read this piece and felt the words welling up inside me and overflowing into the silent but echoey gymnasium. I hope it means something to you because it really stuck with me.
