thanks to sheila for the watercolor!
- Hello sheila and all who enjoyed her watercolor,
A few days ago I tried to write to the list, but could not get
through. I wanted then, as now, to thank you, dear Sheila, for
sending that lovely watercolor, so appropriate to the occasion of
death of a loved one and to the passage from light to darkness.
My mother is still hanging on (in Maryland), and I am still here in
Colorado. Meanwhile, my siblings and community there are active with
her in the transition process.
I hold close the painting, the poem Bradford sent, and the steiner
verse from starman. They are part of the process now...
I am learning that even through suffering, death is glorious and
intimately bound up with what is called life.
