What a wonderful saying.


Yeah, one of my best friends died - coming up on 4 years this December - and at the time when it was all going on I was out on a bender. So one night in a regular haunt of mine I met a physicist and we got to talking about life, the universe and everything. And we both sort of agreed that - speaking in terms of physics - that his energy/atoms were already on their way to be recycled by the cosmos -as nothing is wasted. We both agreed it was a pretty decent arguement for reincarnation - after a fashion, and not the Hindu sense.

Anyway, he had a lot of interesting things to say about death, time, energy, et al. And finally, being raised Jewish himself, he told me that old adage and I found it helped immensely moving past the grief. I suppose the other old adage of "time heals all wounds" is very true as well, and for all of us and whatever losses we suffer it's nice that over time when we look back we can smile and laugh more about the good times than dwelling on the pain of our losses.

So let's raise a glass tonight to those departed and those still with us. L'chaim, my friends!
