This posting is back-dated. The date is only there to connect the content to the day and night (Swedish: ‘Dygn’), that the content of the posting is related to. I authored this as a lullaby posting the night after.
5th of September, 2019, we had a Mika Memorial at his pre-school. I am not at all mature to grasp the full of the event, since it was as hard as it could be. The magnitude of the feeling in a sense was stronger than on the Memorial one week before. The “main one”, with Mika’s remains going down the “feet under”, and since long his angelic spirit being around us – since Aug 1, 2019.
We never called it a Funeral.
It was a Memorial!
It was a Bye-Bye!
And – a such! – it was a See You Later! Auf Wiedersehen! Au Revoir! And so on!
Yes, we will see you later, when our time has come, and our remains lie there as well, beside you.
The Abrahamsson Family Grave.
But – with the event at the pre-school …
Oh my! How can I even transfer the feeling?
This was his herd. His other home. His trusted and connected peers – beloved friends, beloved teachers. In short – HIS OTHER FAMILY! And, as such – mine too! This was everydayness. This was close community. This was the other main place and context he spent his extremely short time on this Earth, besides being with us!
And, as such, a community and family lost for me too!
And this was the ceremonial bye-bye here.
I need to distance myself from this event to share “the full story”. An immense number of images and impressions to wade thru and re:cap via.
No, in short – I give up.
Here, and now.
The material result shared. Via Karin’s Insta Story, a Raw Screen Shot – with the Apple Tree planted in his Name and Memory, with Bye-Bye Drawings from his fellow kids to commemorate and tribute their love and friendship hanging in his tree. With the Deep Red Aroma Apples coming – To go from Blossom in the Spring, to Fruit in the Fall – as background to the Countdown App Image, now Moved Beyond … “Since” …
There it is!
Yes … for the moment.
Letting it be.
Returning with the flow of the event at another moment, at another space, at another place.
(Thinking aloud: Maybe to tune in for longer-format stories, elsewhere? I have a Medium Account residing, and waiting for me to activate it. I also have an option for a dedicated webspace for my Thesis project, totally intertwined with my Stories of Life. Giving myself space to do that. Yes, a sick-leave until Jan 31, 2019. Key stories related to my intended Thesis – Music For Health – to be shared “somewhere”. A Natural Thing, since Music is a key element of all events in the flow of life, high, and low … and especially these! Life stories. Life moments. Life events. And these events – The Strongest That Can Be! Five tunes at the First Memorial, three tunes at the second Memorial, and an event with ALOT of music up-and-coming in Sep 29 – #MikaMemorial #OpenAir! Yes! Making sense – totally… I feel the puzzle pieces coming together, and falling into place .. One Project, One Calling, One Flow of Doing … Yes, I will have a Night’s Rest, or seven …, to figure out where/how … )
In the mean time … to the best Pre-School in our World – with the personell, with the other kids, with the other parents ~
I GIVE MY DEEPEST HEARTFELT GRATITUDE …
SINCE YOU MADE MIKA’S FLOW OF LIFE HERE ON EARTH A TRUE BLISS!
WITH THE LOVE YOU SHARED – WITH THE LOVE HE GOT – AND GIVING HIM A SPACE TO GIVE AND SHARE LOVE TO YOU!
