While I knew I had more poetry to write about this subject, I thought, can I really write a blog post about it? Well, of course I can. augmented, of course by the good work of dear friends. Doug Donley sent me Kate Campbell’s song, Funeral Food.
But I think Funeral Food is an odd mix of what we make best and cherish and become known for, what heals us, and what foods we want folks to associate with us later. Wakes and Shiva are about making memories and building traditions. That way you’ll know what to do when you’re the one in charge.
It’s so good
For the soul
Fills you up
Down to your toes
