I'm Bassanio Gratiano. I am a writer (with poor grammar) of motley things. May my art postings inspire you and may my writings make you smile.

It was an interesting experience being in the hospital. My Uncle had been sick for some time. My aunt had been mourning saying sorry and thank yous in Cantonese since the AM. It was now almost midnight. My cousins were also crying. Our smallest cousin kept whispering how scared she was. The whole day was spent in tears.
I had never experienced anything like this. Amongst the despair, the helplessness, and the anger there was a certain beauty to everything. To see my family there to support one another was beautiful.
I will never shake the site of my aunt grieving and embracing my uncle’s head the way she did last night. To grieve that hard came from such a place of love: a marriage that lasted decades. It made me anxious to be in a relationship where I will love someone that much.
Wishing you the best, Uncle Chris.@1 week ago with 2 notes
