why are you crying woman?

If I had fistsful of time, minutes seconds hours

i would clean my house (but not naked like the lubbock ladies)

no, clothes

but once I had done that I would sit in a sunny place and read about Jewish traditions of bereavement

why was she at the tomb so early, did she go back for the other ladies and the spices? what did she expect to happen?

this last question is the one I think I know the answer to

she did not know

all she knew is that her one great love, the only love in the whole world had been gone from her world for nights and days too many

and she had to be close

to the last place she had seen Him.

Jesus.
