Lost, Losing

"The Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost"--Luke 19:10.

Chronic illness often entails memory loss, which means that many common--as well as precious--items are lost. Some are lost temporary, some permanently, but the loss haunts one. Things are not as they used to be; things are not where they ought to be.

One feels displacement: the object is displaced; you are displaced--not at home, since home has become a haunted house of loss, losing, and lament.
