Is it possible to die... a little?
Your house burns down. Did you die a little? Has part of your life been destroyed?
Your child is maimed, possibly you are injured beyond repair. Did you die a little?
Your husband leaves. Did you die a little? Has your life been robbed?
If this is so, will you please describe situations where you died a little?
It mustn’t be anything so obvious. When my son (at 14) told me he’d rather go to the movies with his friends, rather than me, I’m not sure, but I think, I think I may have died a little. Part of my old life is gone. Has a part of me died? Or, in my son, has a part of me decided to live, albeit, without me?
