Craft Your Pearl Jam: Day Seventeen

Proof of Heaven, by Eben Alexander is an interesting read. After experiencing a recent painful loss of our beloved pet, Freckle, proof of what's next is as poignant as it's going to get. It's only been 13 days so I'm not past "spontaneous tears". This book provided comfort during a vulnerable time.  Knowing we'll all be united in the afterlife has to be what it's all about.

Pearl Jam's song, Alive, deals with the burden of death, which is pretty poetic. Death really is such a heavy  burden to those of us still alive.
