The Origami of Re-Membering by Lorraine Hedtke
A new way of looking at the after-life?
What speaks to me are certain passages. Like this one.
I like to think of each person’s life as having the posthumous potential to become an elaborate folded work of art.
A pink lily?
A white swan?
There are so many ways, it would seem, of talking about the after-life. What happens after. For me, this one—the after-life as a new shape here—in the process of becoming folded and re-folded through stories—this feels to me like a new way of looking.
A way potentially rich with possibilities.
A pink lily.
A white swan.
And who knows? One shape could be folded and refolded into yet another.
Anything could happen.
