empty chairs and full hearts

We gathered with friends last night to remember those who have died this year and to celebrate our ancestors.  Although we left two seats free to remember a mother/nanny and a husband/father/dear friend, it seemed too painful (and too fresh) to talk about them that much. But in sharing a rosemary cookie, we were able to recognize both our emptiness and our fullness and how each person has great power and beauty to change us.
