The mist is finally finishing it's meal. The life support is coming off at seven pm tonight. I've had to beg steal and borrow to get home as I am broke from running back and forth for so long.
Now the mist is having dessert. It's savoring the sweet soul of my father and topping it with the sauce of loved ones. The cherry on top is that I may not make it there in time.
The mist will take it's last breath from my father and I will not be there when he succumbs to it's digestion.
I can see the mist. It's all around me. It's traveled this far, three hundred miles away, surrounding me. Taunting me. Letting me know that I am helpless, hopeless, against it's power.
I hope it won't be hungry again for a long time. I don't know how much more of it I can take. I am tired of the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. I am tired of inhaling the murderous mist that sucks the souls of my family into it's stomach and multiplies itself on their lives. I am tired of the smell of what used to be a comfort; I am tired of the wood and coal burning stoves decorating the mist like jewels. I am tired. I am so very, very tired.
Oh, Daddy....

I am so sorry to hear about your dad... I just read the previous blog and it brought tears to my eyes. It's past 7 now and your dad is no longer suffering, no longer in pain. He's the man you knew again..... and he's with the other loves in your life that you have lost. I bet your mom is holding his hand again right now!

You are in my thoughts......

Thank you for this emotive prose. I'm sure your father would consider it an honor. I will light some incense in his memory tonight.

If I understand it correctly, "the mist" is a metaphor for the air/life force (atmosphere) surrounding your family in eastern Kentucky as well as the mist we know/see in the Smoky Mountains.

If some of your family members are mine workers there is reason for concern. The conditions one encounters working in coal mines affects the lungs, therefore, has a direct impact upon one's health and length of life. Even if they do not work in the mines, unemployment is high in the region, therefore, the area is depressed economically. This in turn affects the family members psychologically as well as financially. If there isn't any way out, the cycle continues from one generation to another.

it sounds as though you were able to escape from the region, yet you are influenced by your time with your family there which is natural. You have a poetic soul and I appreciate your ability to convey your feelings in this manner.

I hope your Dad's passing was peaceful after such a long struggle. May you and your family find comfort with one another... with time healing your pain and suffering. In this way, if it doesn't seem inappropriate, I can see how the mist... if you can look at it in a positive way, may wrap itself around you as a comforting blanket to give you rest and heal your soul. The mist does take the one's you love away from you, but it also feeds your imagination and gives you life.

I lost my Dad, but I got to tell him alot of things way before he went and he did tell me alot of things too. I hope you had time to be with him and he knows you love him. It only takes a secong and they are gone...the ones we love and never want to lose. peace be with you and yours. I hope he sees you as you are suffering and puts a calming hand on your heart to let you know you did all you could and he loves you now as he always did. peace...the suffering we are left with and the place they are givin is the place we will soon see they are where they should be.

I am so sorry for your loss. Hopefully it will be a very long time before you have to smell the mist again.
