Something about the Blum family being all the way over there, and the three of us going all the way round the globe in the other direction, just hit me. That something is the way people's love for Pablo and people's processing of the loss of Pablo - particularly k i d s - is being expressed and passed on for all to see, in words and photographs. That something is also, simply put, people's love for themselves and those around them. Pablo's greatest gift to all of us - we keep hearing this from everyone - is to slow down and appreciate what's right in front of us. A moment. A flower. A courteous gesture from another person. A misstep you just made and the apology that followed. That kind of thing.
Here's Tracy's email - no better words than hers to explain the photo:
Aloha from Pablo's biggest fans in Kauai! We were sitting on the beach writing our names in the sand and Cassiel looked up and thought that Pablo would be able to see his name if we wrote it in the sand....so here it is...and there he was...:)
