  •  Interesting. Nice poem, too. (2+ / 0-)

    One of the benefits of ceremony for me is the gathering of folks who might not otherwise have gathered and whatever they come away from it with. But your observation also brings up the point that even with ceremony, not everyone will even know (and some will or won't care that they knew or didn't). Whenever I hear someone died long after the fact, of course it means I probably didn't know them that well, but I still have recourse to think my own thoughts about what memories I have. It works for me too.
