"You are the only answer"

“Of all the people you will know in your lifetime, you are the only one you will never leave or lose. To the question of your life, you are the only answer”

Steven Pressfield from the book – Nobody wants to read your Sh*t

Turning reality upside down

 

It took me years to get this truth. Years of desperately standing on my head or hands or hanging on a trapeze in the air upside down, trying to turn reality that way to make sense. Until 23 years after my brother’s death, it finally dawned on me. I was working on a solo dance show entitled “One”. It spoke about my relationship with Tal. 

“One”, two and a half years of research, of being with his 19 years of life, everything he left behind him, his legacy, so all in all 25 and a half years to let him go and to understand that I will be the only one I will never lose. 

The one choice we are left with

 

Loss is an important and vital aspect of our life here on earth, this is what I understood from that project. We who outlive the dead have but one choice, live on and make the best of what we are left with.

It took me years, but I finally understood and every day anew I choose to do my best. 

Do you?
