Even for Kings

My Rachmaninoff, the King
and Man of the Forest

May 6, 1991 ― June 1, 2009

"Death comes for us all.
Even for kings he comes."
~Robert Bolt

The King was cremated yesterday, and though the Balinese believe that only through cremation can the spirit be released from the body and be set free to reincarnate again, Rachmaninoff''s spirit left his broken body seconds after death. Melanie described his departing energy as "a whisper," and I felt it as soft, soft, soft. His spirit continues to linger here.
