Golden Light

My Sweet Baby Darling - 10 months today since your body took its leave. The golden light that shined from your eyes at the moment your spirit took flight is always in my heart. This weekend on our wedding anniversary, I sent all my heart, my soul and my love to you. How can it be? I am healing, I am grateful for your love, for our life. Oh Tom, my life will NEVER be the same without you. Baby steps to a future I didn't plan for - baby steps to a future without your sweet smile, your loving arms, your strength and your unconditional love. I miss so many things - more than I can list - they are engraved upon my heart. My darling, my husband, my best friend -- my love flies out to you. To you Tom - my strength and my guide.

Connected in Sorrow

The horror of the devastatation on the Gulf coast and in New Orleans is astounding - loss of a magnitude that is beyond comprehension. Watching the television and crying - making a donation and feeling powerless to do more.

We sway through our lives - "being in control" Once again, the Universe says, "ha!" Choices we make - people trapped in the Superdome because it was the "end of the month" and they didn't have money left for gas OR their autos were such rattle traps that they couldn't trust them to take them out of harm's way.

We are all inextricably connected. Round and round and round in the circle game.
