thank you

Thank you for your comments.  I read them over and over like a meditation.  I know I don't answer them directly, but that doesn't mean I do not appreciate them.

Thank you Janzi, Syd and Ms Moon.  Such precious friends to have in the ether world.  Yes, Ms Moon, my voodoo lily did bloom again this year.  The second year in a row.  My lily blooms before any of the leaves come up, so I am excited to see your bloom.

Thank you Janie for your comments.  It helps so much to write about this.  Especially when I am being so woe is me.  It helps me to snap back to reality and remember how lucky I am to have this life.  To have so many dear precious friends, both here in my life, around the world, and in the ether. 

I am grateful for all of you. 
I am grateful for having a place to write this story.
A story of a person.
A woman who lives in a garden.
And is so very very grateful.


  1. I am reading along, and don't always comment but I do think of you and am very glad you keep writing. Sleep well, and sweet dreams!

  2. So happy for you and your new house! Amazing work that both you and your husband do. Take care. I read every time you post and sometimes I have something to comment about. Your life is full. I am glad.

  3. Glad your house is getting put together and that you will soon be moving in. I love the pics you've posted of it (especially the lime green focus wall).

    Also glad you have this private space to put your thoughts.

    Please know that crying because you've lost the ability to walk three blocks is not a "woe is me" situation. I am disabled and have lost much mobility, and I can tell you it takes an enormous mental adjustment to get used to not being able to do things. Loss of health requires one to go deep into a grief process, and sadness and tears are a normal part this. You are not required to feel only is ok to feel the whole spectrum. :)

  4. I am thinking of you Kathleen, hoping you are well. I miss reading you. I am one of Mary Moon's followers over at blessourhearts.
