Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because dawn has come. – Tagore
Sunday a great silence passed through the suspension community worldwide as we learned that Arwen “Spliff” Rosa had passed away that morning. Those who met him and even those who hadn’t mourned together at the great loss to this community. I have been told before, that the clearest statement about the life someone led can be seen in the number of broken hearts when they leave. I think looking at that, we can all agree that Spliff lived more than most people who are around 100 years. He touched lives around the world, he brought the suspension community closer together, and was truly loved by more people that you could count.
Rather than let ourselves dwell on the sadness we feel, I would like everyone to take a minute to celebrate the incredible life that Spliff led. I haven’t met anyone who knew Spliff that didn’t have a great story to go with it. I would like to invite everyone to share any great memories they had with Spliff here so that we can all have a reminder of how lucky this community was to have him in it.
