I LOVE the line "the call of the gone before" -- it's haunting and beautiful and really comforting. Gorgeous photo, too.

That "call" gave me goosebumps, as if it were reaching way back into time before time, acknowledging our ultimate and always connectedness.

I can almost hear this as an echo. You could stand up high and call it out and it would come back to you. Inspiring.

I'm with others...the call of the gone much more comforting & true than the gone away
