Swan Song F5

Swan Dreams coverReverendMother's Swan Song that's also today's Friday 5, introduced with:
Well friends, as I prepare for the birth of Bonus Baby, it's time to simplify life, step back from the Friday Five, and let one of the other capable and creative RevGals take the helm. It's been a great almost 17 months of co-hosting the F5, but it's time to say goodbye... so here's my swan song.
On Endings and Goodbyes

1. Best ending of a movie/book/TV show

Again I'm late in F5 time, so I'll default into the book of Revelation's New Creation at the end of the book of books, The Bible.

2. Worst ending of a movie/book/TV show

The last episode of Will & Grace, one of the only sitcoms I've ever watched on a reasonably regular basis.

3. Tell about a memorable goodbye you've experienced.

Not just one, but every time I left my grandmother after visiting her for however long, since I knew she was getting older (just as we're all doing) and despite everything, she'd been the only family member who wasn't too too crazy and consistently had supported me and my dreams.

4. Is it true that "all good things must come to an end"?

Sometimes trite phrases are true, but I'd interpret that not so much as they must end, but that change, modification, transformation and reformation are inevitable when the Spirit of Life prevails, which, of course, S/He always does.

5. "Everything I ever let go of has claw marks on it." —Anne Lamott Discuss.

I've learned it's impossible fully to let go of the past or acknowledge it's over until you have something reasonable to take its place, but I so tend to keep grasping tightly whatever it was, longing for the new but terrified it won't arrive or won't be as good as the old.

Swan Dreams playlistBonus: ...propose an alternative: "It isn't over until...dawn breaks on the next installment."

PS Please note I've included CD inserts for RM's Swan Song.

PPS Many thanks and many blessings, RM!

Memories like the ones you have of your grandmother are food for the soul, especially when the rest of family life is, uh, perhaps more challenging?
