Blowing in the Wind by TeaPhotography Blowing in the Wind by TeaPhotography
I'd like to dedicate this to my dear friend Sandy :iconiluvbiscuit2:
and also to my only sibling Brian,
both who had young family friends which were also fellow-employees of the companies they each worked for [Sandy's dad's, in her case], pass on very suddenly last week.

There are no good words to be comforting enough, in times when it is difficult to understand such things.

And it is difficult to be of much help, when you live so far from those you care so much about.

I just want them to know how much I care, and that they are cared for by many others, and many thoughts and much love are with them and the families of these two great young men.
:heart:

Sandy has been very supportive to me in such a variety of ways, and she is a great person, and an amazing friend, and I want to be as supportive as I can be in return, despite the distance. :heart:

While my brother may not live quite as far away as Sandy, he lives far enough that I hardly ever get to see him. He manages to be supportive to me in many ways, despite being a very busy and hardworking father. I am very proud of him, and I wish I could be there in person for him. :heart:


Blowing in the Wind
~Bob Dylan

How many roads must a man walk down
Before they call him a man
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand
How many times must the cannonballs fly
Before they are forever banned
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

How many years must a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea
How many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free
How many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky
How many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry
How many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

:music: Lyrics HERE: [link]
:tunes: YouTube LINK: [link]
Peter, Paul, and Mary's version, because I like it better than Bob Dylan's in this case.
Dylan always wrote GREAT lyrics... but sometimes... Well this is just nice. :aww:

Aw Sandy... I really have had trouble "shaking this" and you telling me what these people said, makes me feel better about not actually trying to "shake it"... I will just go with it...

I know I am no where physically near to this, the way that you are... but this tragedy has really touched me, and I have really wished I could do more to be supportive to you and those who know him... :hmm:

I didn't know if I should even make such a dedication... cause sometimes some people are not receptive to such things... but, it's just given our distance- yours and mine, and my feeling so helpless, I just wanted to express myself.

AND, I think it also has a lot to do with the fact that in the SAME week the same thing happened to my brother with a friend/co-worker of HIS at his work place. :no:

It was a super close friend of his, too, and of course he is devastated, and
I am far away from him as you know... and I feel helpless, and sad about this, too.

[you know I am sensitive... ]

My mom hasn't told him that I am coming, though, and he rarely checks dA, so we are hoping I can help a bit when I come.

Wish I could come meet you one day...

I wish I could meet you one day! you could even ride a horse :heart: Only it is to far :( but I might even come visit one day maybeeee!

My husbands younger brother just passed suddenly about a week ago now he was going on his 26th b-day on the thieteenth of this month, he had a staf infection get into his bloodstream and went to his brain and he died in his sleep from an anurism, he was just at the hospital the day before and they kept looking at his stomach and surprisingly never found it in his blood, when I read what you had wrote up above I thought I would share my story. he was like my brother too and I just cant believe he is gone and dont know really how to deal either.

I want to say that I am so sorry for your loss, just as I am sorry for the losses that I speak of in this dedication.
And of course he was like a brother to you, if he was your husband's brother. I understand that completely!
:hmm:
This was a very sudden and tragic event for your husband and the whole family of your husband's brother to experience, and it is difficult to imagine the shock of it. It is understandable to not know how to deal with this.

Sometimes, people say that everything happens for a reason, but sometimes for me, things just feel random... but maybe it's both... where there might be a reason, but it's too soon for us to know or understand it, but perhaps one day at some point in the future, such seemingly nonsensical things may come to us with some kind of clarity...

For now, they just seem to be upon the wind.

Anyway... I don't have any concrete answers [of course, obviously!]
but to say, that I am glad you felt you could share your story.
And that my thoughts and heart are with you and your family as well during this difficult time.

Oh it is so nice of you to be so generous here. :aww:
Yes I have this "thing" with trying to transcend distance... since we are not physically near to anyone. :aww:
It makes things difficult at times, but I also believe in trying to help and be supportive in other ways as much as possible despite distance.
Thank you for your understanding comment, and yes about the song. :cuddle:

It is important to overcome distance... because in fact... the heart does not "understand distance"... Our affections remain the same in spite of!!!....

In fact, it often makes you stop and truly appreciate the people in your lives more at times, likely because you are missing them so often. :nod:
