RIP Mr. Bourdain

As many losses as we experience, as a people, so grows our courage and our ability to face what we face, each day – and when we find the resources, we want to share them, and so we do. Thank you for this post Venus Lotus. Sometimes we allow that sense of loss and confusion to help guide us back to remembering why we are here and how each and every one of us is worthy of peacefulness


โ€œAs you move through this life and this world, you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life โ€” and travel โ€” leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks โ€” on your body or on your heart โ€” are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.โ€ -Anthony Bourdainย

  1. I had not come across this gentleman until his passing.. Then read up about his life.. I can see why his death impacted upon so many..
    Maybe that in itself needs looking at.. As we question Life and Death and all that goes inbetween. xx

    1. Yes, it’s very sad. I still think: what if he would have been able to wait out another period of sadness and despair, and been able to make adjustments in his life so he could enjoy more of the good stuff. We all have been impacted by his death – and even those who were not at all familiar with his foods, works, life. This partly inspired the “Coming from a small space” post, only in the sense that we must ask – what is success?- We can think lots on it, but I want for him very much the peace for which he deeply needed. Thank you Sue for sharing this witnessing moment, as we continue to say ‘goodbye’ for now.

      1. So many now are taking their exits.. May be those that seem to have everything, ARE asking us to question about Life and fulfilment, as we ask ourselves what life is all about.. โค
