The crazy ideas we get after a loved one has passed

When someone you love passes away, it is easy to find yourself thinking up ideas similar to this:

  1. If I rub every lamp I find, I’m sure a genie will eventually appear to grant me that one wish.
  2. If I learn to lucid dream, I’ll see them in my dreams and it’ll be like they’re really there.
  3. Maybe they’re a ghost and if I attempt to make contact with them, I’ll eventually get a response.
  4. Maybe they’ll reincarnate into someone and try to find me.
  5. I could buy one of those ouija boards and try to contact them.
  6. What if they’re not really dead and I have to go on a quest to find them?

Depending on your imagination, this list could be completely different. Regardless, I think it crosses everyone’s minds that with a little bit of magic or mystery things could be different. I’m sure this is normal. Or maybe it’s more that I hope this is normal. I think about crazy schemes like these from time to time. It’s been almost 9 years since my dad passed and the ideas still creep up on me when I least expect them too.

  1. I suppose mammals have attachment built into them at a deep genetic level. I remember visiting my grandparents house for years after my Nan passed away, and just the smell around the house of lavendar – even years later – conjured the sense that she was still there – that she might walk through the door at any moment.
