Do not stand at my grave and weep 
I am not there. I do not sleep. 
I am a thousand winds that blow. 
I am the diamond glints on snow. 
I am the sunlight on ripened grain. 
I am the gentle autumn rain. 
When you awaken in the morning's hush 
I am the swift uplifting rush 
Of quiet birds in circled flight. 
I am the soft stars that shine at night. 
Do not stand at my grave and cry; 
I am not there. I did not die.

This was posted today on twitter. A pretty, comforting thing. No harm in believing this if it makes you feel better. I suspect it's true, anyway. Mind you, the loss is still there.

Of course in the wake of the death of George Bush Sr., the tributes pour in. I'm okay with that, but I'm also okay with criticisms of his legacy as well. I like the idea of a Speaker For The Dead, the Orson Scott Card idea, of a full and honest appraisal upon someones' death. I find this preferable to suck up eulogies.

He wasn't a god, but I did mostly like the man. That's the way I prefer to remember anybody.
