My Dear Wendy, can't tell you how relieved I am to read your post. That seemingly boundless optimism you possess,leaps out from every word. Need all the optimism I can lay my hands on at the moment.
                      'Jane's Rainbow' set sail on the 12th January 2012. What a voyage we are having. What lies beyond the horizon? Whatever it may be, there is Wisdom & Love in abundance on which we can rely & turn to when Life's storms batter us & threaten our very existence.
                      With Love to You All,

Goodness, I have been away from the Rainbow too long! Nigel, thank you for thinking of us, we went to the beach hut on Sunday, a beautiful sunny day and, miracle of miracles, our hut is fine but the huts either side were badly damaged ,as were most of the others. Being on stilts the sea surged underneath and pushed the decking skywards in most cases and the huts at Walton near the coastguard station were mostly washed away. My brother was told to evacuate his flat on the quay in Harwich but fortunately had no damage on his return.

But all this is nothing compared to the sadness and illness that other crew members have had. Welcome on board Linn, you will be enveloped with love on this ship!

Mother is progressing well, we have had a few hiccups with the 24 hour care, but she is walking with a frame but getting very frustrated with the cast on the arm as she does not understand that she fell . The pelvis fracture isn't giving her very much pain and the main problem is getting her confidence back. The dementia however has gone down a level, maybe due to shock? She is very tearful and confused.

But Billy and I have managed to visit Christopher for his birthday and again last weekend saw Giles Brandreth at Christopher's theatre
( very funny he was too!) Samantha and I went to the carol concert at Holy Trinity in Sloane Square on Monday evening. It was compared by John Suchet and Brian Blessed read " The night before Christmas" It was a lovely evening.

Have to admit the past three weeks have been " not the best" I have felt very down worrying about mother, but am counting my blessings and sending my love to all needing a hug!

Oh and Billy had a positive visit to see his consultant today, all his blood tests were good, still in remission!

Not long till Christmas, a time for the little ones, nativity plays, carol singing and sharing love and peaceful thoughts, and thanking Nigel for Jane's Rainbow.

with love

Wendy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Leaning into those big hugs. Sorry I have been absent. It has been on purpose. Too much physical (off work 2 weeks and doc put me on gabapentin) and emotional pain.

Wallowing in private around the holiday. I was anxious that any posts about Thanksgiving would make me more sad. Homesick to the extreme around this time of year.

Add to that, worrying myself silly about my parents in law here in UK. Mum's dementia getting so bad and poor Dad (in his mid 90's and pretty frail) is sometimes beside himself trying to cope with her. I think he is finally starting to see some sense about either moving with her into assisted living facility or in with his son Chris and me or his daughter and her husband.

I started the monthly Simponi (anti TNF) injections 27 November. Literature says it can take from 4 to 6 months to take effect.

All best to everyone.

Oops; shoulda told you all that they did, in fact, get me out on Tuesday; they got me out the door moments before the dinner tray would have arrived, so we scooted to a little restaurant and at least had a decent, if not gourmet, dinner for our anniversary. We had friends on standby, one to drive us home and one to bring our car, which had been sitting in the emergency entrance lot all week. But the doc said there was really no problem with my driving home (just a couple of miles) so we let them off the hook. (The restaurant was right on the route home).
We just got back from a concert by singer-songwriter Joe Crookston at the Flint Folk Music Society. The man is very, very good.

Oh, Janie, that apple cake sounds a treat! (Especially with cognac available...)

I was just reading M.F.K. Fisher aloud to Tom (or to Rufus, dishragged across my knee), working on "An Alphabet for Gourmets" which Tom left me in the middle of...

I think, when I'm in Milwaukee for my mother's funeral, I need to introduce my sister to the winter joy of port and Stilton (or Gorgonzola...or Gouda).

It's been another sort of weepy day for me...not that that is necessarily bad.

Eight wild turkeys in my down-the-hill (and across the road) neighbor's yard when I went out, eleven still in the yard when I returned.

pausing to offer a prayer for those recently bereaved, and for those not so recently. reading of such, evokes feelings of our own loss of loved one, but we would not want it any other way than being able to identify and empathise with those mourning over their dear ones.

Linn, I am reminded of a dear friend who spoke with me about a dream she had several weeks after her brilliant and fabulously curious scientist spouse died of pituitary cancer. In her dream, he appeared in the form of a sphinx, both flying and swimming through the cosmos, a delighted smile on his face at the prospect of new territory to explore.

maeve, I often imagine some of the little juncos and white throated-sparrows at my winter feeders spent the summer at your place.

Dean, are you home now?

Nigel, in a little bit, check your pm's.

I baked a fresh apple cake, redolent with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, and wonderfully moist, with a carmelized buttermilk glaze. Just freed it from the tube pan and it is here in the galley. Fresh pot of coffee made, tea bags and hot water out, (yes, that is a bottle of fine cognac on the sideboard for those so inclined.) Come on into the mess as you have time. Maybe a little caroling around the table?

This has been a year of funerals, it seems. Even before Tom died, we had lost 8 friends or spouses of friends since March. And then Tom died and my mother died.

It's been a rough year -- and certainly not just for me.

The "good thing" about going to Milwaukee for my mother's funeral is that I will get to see some elderly relatives (and friends of my mother) whom I didn't think I would see again. And get to spend some time with my sister (and with my brother and his family, though less than with my sister).

A friend who lost his wife earlier this year (one of those 8 friends Tom and I lost) had a life-changing experience when he and his wife read "Immortal Diamond" by Richard Rohr and has been passing out copies of the book. Took me awhile to start reading it; at first after Tom's death even while reading a lightweight mystery, I'd read the same page 3 or 4 times while talking aloud to...who? Tom? the Universe? myself? the cats? Then I got so I could concentrate a bit while reading, but nothing too heavy. Just started "Immortal Diamond" earlier this week. Despite it being marketed through some Christian websites and Rohr being a Franciscan, it is not what I'd call a "Christian" book -- thank goodness. I've been thinking I was a religion of one, that there was probably no other person who shared my particular religious/spiritual beliefs. (And there may NOT be an exact match...but who cares?) Anyway, what I'm finding in the book are so many of my beliefs articulated.

I believe in the continuation of life, that we existed before we were born and that we will exist after we die, transitioning from our current existence to another one. I also believe that quantum and particle physics and the existence of an infinite number of parallel universes is where science and religion come together. (I have no idea if Rohr makes any allusion to any of this; I'm not that far in the book.) Tom may be in another universe. Tom and I might be together in yet another universe. Tom and his first wife might even be together in another universe. Infinite probability and infinite improbability. (Oh, yeah, and the answer is "42"...)

Friends brought their very wise three-year-old to the hospice on the day Tom died. She'd danced a goodbye full of symbols at the funeral of that other friend's wife earlier this year. Anyway, the next day her father told me she had said a couple things the previous day. One was "Tom Hall loves me." Simple statement. (I don't think Tom had ever really spoken to her; the Press Room is no place for conversation during a session.) And then, just after Tom died, she asked her father, "Where did Tom go?" Steve said, "Well, where you you before you were born?" And she replied with a profundity I've not encountered from many adults. She said, "Right here. I was right here." I get goose bumps every time I tell that story.

I know that Tom has continued on his journey. And I know, too, that he is "right here"... (I'm crying again.) But I'm missing his physical presence...being able to read to him (and reminisce about things the reading reminded us of), of telling him about the eight turkeys walking down the middle of the road when I came home the other day, of the fog in the trees down the hill from the bathroom window, sharing dulce de leche ice cream, agreeing that some singer-songwriter being played on the folk show can't even sing...

I've got to get away from the computer and get a few things done.

I've had a few too many tears recently - tears for people like Tom who I've never met, tears for characters/situations in books (novels???, I call that soppy!) or for situations in the news & the real world (definitely not soppy.)

Last week the daughter of friends died. I'd only met her once briefly, at the funeral of one of her parent's contemporaries, & she didn't attend the next funeral of another of their contemporaries who she had also known all her life. She died of cancer, & I assume she was too sick to be there.

Liz was 45, married 10 years with 3 children & it was seeing the youngest child (5 yrs old?) holding her father's hand in the church that brought more tears, tho I'd already ruined several tissues before seeing them. There were a lot more tears at her funeral than the previous funerals, the Catholic church was full of people, many of them her age, some with their children.

I've been to too many funerals this year - one of my contemporaries & 2 older friends, & then this funeral.

This is actually the first time I've had breathing space (at least breathing space AT THE COMPUTER) to be able to read this thread from just before Tom died on November 14th (three weeks...three minutes...three years...my sense of time is totally screwed up) til this morning.

Thank you all so much for your prayers, hugs, support, good thoughts, comfort... I may not have been reading here, but I felt them all...

Those who don't read Curmudgeon's obit thread or my scribblings on the de-clutter thread (which also acts as a support group) may not know that my mother in Milwaukee (age 85) passed away a little over a week after Tom. For the past several years she has known that if she died, I couldn't leave Tom to come to her funeral -- and she was okay with that. I just wish she'd given me a little bit more time to come to grips with losing Tom before she let go. At least her funeral isn't until Dec. 16th, so I don't have to fly out until a few days before. Could use some prayers that the weather holds, too!

I'm getting things accomplished...packed some stuff off to Goodwill, giving other significant things to friends, donating his wheelchair and other equipment...trying to get some household repairs done, too (like the electrical work that was scheduled for the day he died).

I still cry when I least expect it and that's frustrating only when I'm trying to talk to someone (and I haven't yet mastered the art of talking intravenously). Yesterday was a weepy day; don't know why. (Three weeks? Why then more than any other day since November 14th?) I've learned to, well, enjoy the sobs, my eyes tearing up, tears running down my cheeks. Remembering. I seldom cried as a child and for the next 60+ years, mostly cried from frustration. Could never seem to cry to gain that sort of release that I needed, such as when my father died. I no longer seem to have that problem...

Looks like I'll be a regular here...

       Janie's post on 13th Dec. lingers in my mind. To meet, spend time together, talk face to face would, indeed, be an occasion to savour. A touching of hearts & minds.
       Got the 'All Clear' from the cancer scan. Huge relief. Two more years & I have to do it all over again (until I'm 74). Still, it's all in the name of early detection, which has to be a good thing because the cure/survival rate is about 90% if detected early enough.

An hour or so ago they yanked out the tube that went in under the breastbone to my heart. Then my head slowly came back down from the ceiling. Again, I'm fine, but for the moment I'm about as tender and shakey as just after they installed it. Nothing else in this whole episode hurt nearly as much as that yank.

They've completed all bioping and culturing of the sap they tapped out; nothing scary in there at all. They've almost promised to kick me out of here tomorrow. "Tis a comsumation devoutly to be wished" (Did I remember that anywhere near correctly?)

Tami, we missed Thanksgiving with NH family too. There are some we won't get to see again. Need a late feast? We just hosted an unexpected meal for family...including my mother who may very well not see another Thanksgiving. You're welcome to drive up for a Thanksgiving lunch.

Okay, guys: let's have a competitive Ranger-hugging match : )

At least I can get to the laptop again; much easier posting!

I will have some plumbing attached for a day or so yet, but I'm fine save for the annoyance of being kinda immobilized. They got 20 liquid ounces outta me. They've been trying to culture any life forms from the stuff, and haven't found a sign of anything I can take home for a pet. Most likely bet as of now: something virusy that messed with me and went it's way, with no reason to expect any recurrance.

Nigel, Spaw, and all, I'm good for pumping some mojo for you all again.
          Dean

I don't post much here, but I read daily. Nigel - deep breaths, my friend. And a big hug. Dean - so glad they caught your problem before you got in the air. Big hugs for both you and Judy. Spaw - you are frequently in my thoughts, especially when the dog lets loose an SBD on the couch next to me. Just kidding about the farts (or am I?). Big hugs for you, too, just because. And big hugs for anyone else who needs them.

That said, I could use a few myself. Thanksgiving plans with the family fell through due to weather, and this past week is always the hardest one of the year for me - last Monday my dad would have been 68.

Yup, Spaw. It's one a them there songs that MAKES ya groove, even if the genre ain't yer cup a tea.

Not too sure if the lyrics I copied are correct but, given the vocal track mix-in, I never could/would be able to tell anyway. >;-)

No Rain

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain,
I like watchin' the puddles gather rain
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
And speak my point of view but it's not sane
It's not sane

I just want someone to say to me, oh,
I'll always be there when you wake, yeah
Ya know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today
So stay with me and I'll have it made
And I don't understand why sleep all day
And I start to complain that there's no rain
And all I can do is read a book to stay awake,
And it rips my life away but it's a great escape
Escape, escape, escape

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain,
Ya don't like my point of view,
Ya think that I'm insane
It's not sane, it's not sane

I just want someone to say to me, oh, oh, oh
I'll always be there when you wake, yeah
Ya know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today
I really wanna really gonna have it made
Oh oh oh

Thinking especially of Dean & his Wife. Spaw (owe you a PM), & Gnu for making me laugh. I'm waiting for the results of a recent bowel cancer screening. It's the routine test offered to all folks in the UK between the ages of 60-74. But with my propensity for anxiety & depression, the waiting (probably about another week) is playing on my mind. The situation is made more complicated because my other med. probs. are renowned for generating 'False Positives'. If that happens, then the batch of tests to eliminate the FPs are extensive & invasive. The 'stats' are very much on my side, but I take small comfort from that. I think it was that great comedy icon, Spike Milligan who said: "I have a hero's body, but cowards' legs". That's about where I am at the moment....just want to run away. Spaw has thrown me a life-line with the words:"....he's proven himself a tough old bird...." Flightless I may be...I'm working on 'tough'. Trying not to let you down, Pat,
                                              Much Love to You All,
                                                                               Nigel
