10:26 am - Funeral today
My Grandpa's funeral is today. maatnofret will be singing at it. I think it's the first time she's ever been paid to sing. I know she will sound fantastic. She has a pretty voice, and the song the family has picked out is a good one.
The song is "Will The Circle Be Unbroken". It's an old folk/gospel tune from the 40s or 50s from a musical family that Johnny Cash married into. My grandma says it was one of my grandpa's favorites. My grandma knows lots about my grandpa that nobody else knows. It's true that she's lived with him for 60-70 years, but it's also true that as far as I know my grandpa had no close relationships with anybody else. I'm not even sure how close my grandma and grandpa were.
I want a life that's vibrant and alive, and full of my family, my friends and my lovers (subset of previous two sets). I'm kind of closed sometimes, but I hope I'm never that closed. I have too many things I want to do, and large, society-wide things I want to participate in. Isolationism is not for me.
