“Like a butterfly hurriedly moving from flower to flower, moving this way and that, what was I searching for?”
Then something happens. While settling into a comfortable small town life in Michigan, she gets the word that her ex-husband Brock had committed suicide.
Cold. Numbness. Disbelief. The world slowed down. The tree branches moved in slow motion in the breeze. Sounds rushed through my ears like wind. I sat outside the clubhouse on a small patio and watched the leaves on the ground, all in magnificent colors rushing around me as if I were in the middle of a cyclone.
I asked her how. She said the words I dreaded all of the 28 years I had known Brock.
“Suicide,” she said.
The author returns to New Mexico for the funeral. Biros’ love for her ex-husband is real and deep. “When it's my time to go, come get me. I want you to be the one to come for me.” she says to him while viewing the casket.
The author describes the Michigan countryside and the small towns—South Lyon, Northville—with details and warmth in a way that had me considering packing my bags and moving there. Her description of her “ordinary” life is equally engaging. I felt like I was a friend living every day with her. But even an ordinary life has its mysteries. For instance. What is the story behind the blue jacket hanging on a tree branch? Why did she leave her hometown? Who was that old fisherman?
“On a quest to find a final resting spot for my ex-husband’s ashes, I found more. In death, he led me back home to face what I had run from in the first place – myself. This is a story of death and rebirth, of despair and hope, the journey of my lifetime.”
Zushka Biros writes with passion and honesty. She writes like a good friend telling you a story, telling you her secrets.
I'm looking forward to read more from Zuska's Biros.
