Emmylou Harris Once Said…

Emmylou Harris was born on April 2, 1947. Emmylou is an American singer, songwriter, and musician.

Animals have a much better attitude to life and death than we do. They know when their time has come. We are the ones that suffer when they pass, but it’s a healing kind of grief that enables us to deal with other griefs that are not so easy to grab hold of. – Emmylou Harris

I picked this quote because it definitely resonated with me. Although I’d have to say that animals grieve too but I think she’s talking about how they deal with their own death as it approaches and how they handle it. I know I’m not alone in that when my Dexter and Luna were murdered I didn’t take it very well but circumstances of that are obvious. It was their deaths that helped me deal with my friend Steve and my uncle Louie and also how I’ve processed my aunt Louise passing recently. I’m including a video for people to watch from Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt that reminded me of my aunt Louise. May she rest in peace.
