I’ve been thinking about who would really miss me if I were not to come back from the wilderness. I think there are people who would care but also that there are different degrees of mourning.
For instance you might feel bad at a friend’s disappearance but the loss might be harder to deal with if the deceased were a parent or sibling. If the lost one were a partner or spouse you depended on daily I would guess it may be really hard to take.
I have no spouse or siblings, but I guess there are folks out there who would consider my passing significant. I don’t anticipate any problems returning from the wilderness provided I keep my canoe upright. I have no desire to disappear. The spirit is still willing.
Outside of any eschatological interferences I plan to return.
