When I was 13 years old my grandma passed away. I always had a weird feeling like she never really was gone, like still felt her in every aspect of my life. When she passed, my family was in the process of building a house out in the outskirts of town, with some land and a small pond. I remember there being a blue herring that would come and hang out in our pond and, because the timing of when the blue herring showed up and the timing that she passed, I always thought there was some kind of element or connection to it that didn’t fully make sense... reincarnation or something. Anyways, throughout the next 16 years, during times of incredible stress or worry, I would find myself needing to clear my head and get outdoors and kind or center my ideas and clear my mind. Every time, I would notice a blue herring hanging around, joining me on my adventure... every time. Last week was no different. I know it’s weird, but I’m always comforted to feel like whenever or where ever I’m struggling to keep focus or motivation, she is with me. I wasn’t able to get a picture, but outside, among the trees and the kind of silence you can’t pay money to achieve, it hits home to see any kind of sign that she’s still around. It was a good day.
