I think Kwan intended to show me the world is not a place but the
vastness of the soul. And the soul is nothing more than love,
limitless, endless, all that moves us toward knowing what is true. I
once thought love was supposed to be nothing but bliss. I now know it
is also worry and grief, hope and trust. And believing in ghosts --
that's believing that love never dies. If people we love die, then
they are lost only to our ordinary senses. If we remember, we can
find them anytime with our hundred secret senses.
