“Wit” Is Unbelievably Unforgettable.


~~I can quite honesty confess that this scene from the Pulitzer winning play “Wit will move you from your seat.  

Wit was written by Margaret Edson;   she states, “This play is about knowledge, grace, and redemption.

In this clip you will observe Emma Thomson who plays Professor Vivian Bearing being  visited by her old college professor, whom she’s never particularly liked.   I found this scene especially powerful and moving because we cannot comprehend who our angels will be during our darkest hours….

I know during my dark days, I have been quite surprised by the amazing encouragers and mentors who have come forward.

 Sometimes the one  we least expect to love us will be the person who will hold our hand in the end.

 Vivian Bearing in dying of ovarian cancer.  After watching this scene, I thought about it for several days afterwards. 

 Stunning.     Dazzling.     Potent.    Unforgettable. Beautiful.

    Oh, Kim. That hurt. Three minutes into it, I was sobbing, wanting to turn it off. I just couldn’t though. It was so painful, but it was such a heart-wrenching reminder of how we, as human beings, need to BE there for other people. We get so wrapped up in the rush of daily life, that we often leave people who are hurting behind. I really needed to see this today. There are people that need hugs, encouragement, love, or just a hand on their shoulder. I get physically sick thinking about someone – anyone – dying alone and afraid. I imagine we are all afraid at the end, but I think that having a kind voice, a warm embrace might make a person not feel so scared. Awwww. Love ya, Kim. xoxo

    Very powerful, I guess no one really knows what or who God has planned to help us ease the pain of life and death.

    You Rocked It Again,
