wednesday’s thoughts…

happy wednesday all.. 
two weeks ago i was hospitalized with some cardiac issues
which are still being figured out unfortunately.. due to this and my 
other health issues, i’ve been extremely fatigued and not feeling well at all. 
because of this i’ve been looking at past pics to help me to feel better and
i wanted to share a few of my favorites with my french love 
at a cafe near where he lives…

monday musings…

i had the wonderful opportunity to attend the women’s March here in augusta, me. on the 21st of january. For sure i physically payed for it but my heart needed it. i was able to get a few images of this amazing group of humans.. the love i felt, the love and warmth we all felt, cannot be understated.

till you will see me again and live in me.
till then my windows ache”

“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”

~ Kahlil Gibran ~

friday’s thoughts…

its been quite a week, first, personally trying to adjust to new ways of doing things all the while being out of my comfort zone (metaphorically speaking). luckily my French Love is patient and caring as we both adjust to harmonizing our two lives into one.  Second, with what has happened all around the world, especially in Boston, my original and sometimes second home.

these last days i find that the photos i’m editing and posting need to be soft, calming images. when i look a them i can take a moment to just be. to remember that not all people are out to hurt and maim others, again personally and globally, to be able to see, as with the Boston bombings, that there are more good and decent people then we may think. unfortunately we don’t witness it unless something tragic has happened. the world may have a lot of angry and vengeful people in it and due to the fact that they tend to speak the loudest, in whichever manner they choose, we forget about the selfless and caring people who tend to be more behind the scenes and keep a lower profile. These remarkably good souls, thankfully tip the scale of balance towards the light in the midst of what appears to be ever growing darkness.

my Love…

to be cared for,

inside my French Love’s thoughts,

caressed by his ideas,

kissed by his words,

loved by his soul,

he is my home.

We do not find the meaning of life
by ourselves alone
we find it with another.”

On this Thanksgiving I have so much to be thankful for. To know that I have a chance to live and to know I am getting better every day thanks to my stem cell donor, its the one thing I am most thankful for. In addition, I never would have gotten where I am without the help and support of family and friends. To those of you who have stood by my side, for the good and the bad through all this, I am truly thankful, there aren’t enough words to express how I feel. I am also thankful for all the lessons I’ve learned over the past 2 1/2 years, some of them more painful then others but I can say I wouldn’t change anything to be where I am today. Very, very thankful to have my family with me today for dinner. Even though my Love can’t be here in person I’m thankful for Skype which will make him a little less far.

Today may be the official day of Thanks but I hope and wish that you can find something to be thankful for every day. There is always something.. even on my bad days I can see this. Please don’t let negativity dominate you. There is too much anger and resentment already.. why not just be thankful for at least one thing, all the time.

Happy Turkey Day all.. and to those of you outside the states.. Happy Thanks to you..

Summer Rain..

“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.”

In a Bubble at Dana Farber…

Hello everyone and so sorry I’ve not posted anything in a while. I went into the hospital on February 23 for my weeklong stay to have a stem cell transplant. I had done video blogs which I posted to my personal Facebook page and I had every intention of posting them here as well however I hadn’t figured out how to post videos here.. needed a plug in and all that jazz.. so today, Monday, I finally figured it out. I will post all videos here, days 1-6.. tomorrow I will post my daily posts I did after the hospital and hopefully I will be all caught up.. once again thanks for all the love and support both near and far from everyone.. love truly makes the world go round..
