vitvivatora 34:41


I wrote this piece for my dear friend Ian Bonnet. It was during a time of great loss and pain in his life and I found myself standing in the middle of all of it at the very moment that tragedy hit him, without any idea of how to react or console him. I was not yet equipped to deal with this kind of human struggle. I began to reexamine my life and the world around me, nature, the divine and, perhaps most of all, what it meant to be alive - truly alive. As time went on I became aware of a new strength growing in both of us each day. The kind of strength that only comes when one has been changed to their very essence. The kind of strength that comes when one is forced to truly face themselves and all that they had known and believed. I believe there is a truth and a strength that lies dormant in all of us and at moments of such great questioning and consternation, it is this strength that pushes us through, and it is through this transmutation that we become something different, something new and something more whole. I now call this essence and strength, Vitvivatora.
