Dearest Nigel and Ann,

A day has arrived that no one ever wanted to happen. As we crewed along together we only wished and hoped for the best but then the best became that which we wanted least. Jane is now free of the pain which she never deserved. Your pain, and ours as we care deeply for your family, continues. Over time the healing will begin. Let it begin now.

As I thought about about some appropriate song, and as it so often happens, two came to me together and from a source I never expected.......an album of lullabyes froma contemporary artist. The first I will leave now and the other later today. This one is a beautiful old standard. As I listened I realized that after her great struggle Jane has reached and is now cradled in her valley of love.

Simple Gifts



Spaw

I wrote this poem for Ann the day before Jane entered hospital for the very last time. Ann is happy for me to share these lines with you. The poem is entitled: 'We sat & Watched'.




"We sat & watched our Daughter sleeping, unofficial vigil keeping.

Saw the covers rise & fall, movement slight, scarce seen at all.

All the time the question: Why? Unanswered still, e'en though we cry,

Why Her? Why Us? Our Family? Is this our fate, our destiny?

Life's living rules have all been changed, the order has been rearranged.

The Child dies first? That's not the way & we're unable to delay

Nature at Her very worst, our Darling Girl left so close nursed.

And when the end comes, as it will, still half a life left to fulfil.

A coterie of things not done, no sharing in the joy & fun

Of living out a normal life as Mother, Sister, Child & Wife.

Insidious, remaining hidden, entering her life unbidden,

No cure, no cure the doctors say, they cannot make it go away.

And if we could, we'd take her pain & if we could, begin again.

By re-creating life anew, a miracle not ours to do".

                   With Love & eternal Gratitude to All of You, our Dearest Friends,
                                                 Nigel & Ann.
                                                 xxxxxxxxxx

What a wonderful thing for the framer to do. I was talking to my step-granddaughter the other day, who was concerned about all the bad news in the world. I told her that there are a lot of good people doing good things - they just don't make good news. I will pass on this amazing piece of generosity to her.

ChanteyLass & Janie, between the two of you, you've managed to fill my afternoon with joy & tears in about equal measure. I love good stories that are told directly from one's Life Experiences & I love good songs that derive their genesis from Lifes' Experiences. You gave me/us, both.
          I spent most of this morning getting a beautiful photograph of Jane enlarged & framed. It will stand alongside her coffin on Thursday. I cried at the copy shop & I cried at the picture framers & then I cried some more because the framer refused to take any money for his work. He said he couldn't imagine what we were going through & the framed photo was a gift that represented his condolences. That, from a complete stranger....I'm crying again.....
                                           With Love to You All,
                                                                           Nigel & Ann.

A few years ago I took ago I took Qi Gong classes at my local Y. Among the participants were a woman,, M, and her adult daughter, S, who was the mother of a school-age daughter, A, who was too young to participate in the classes. Regarding M and S, I thought, "How nice that a mother and daughter are taking these classes together, although sometimes I thought M was being overly protective. S was very thin and often said her lower back hurt. I told her that one yoga technique was to simply bend over, resting torso on thighs and lowering head toward floor. (We were seated during this portion of class.) She tried it and said it brought some relief and did it again during the next several weeks of classes. I occasionally wondered why a woman so young and slim could have such severe and frequent back pains but never asked because I didn't want to pry. Then for a few weeks M and S were missing from classes. One week our instructor told us that S had died from cancer. I went back through the online obits to find hers. After her diagnosis she had embraced alternative therapies and shamanism. Mary returned to class a few times, really to say goodbye to us and say that A and her dad were doing as well as could be expected under the circumstances. That was the last I saw of M until few weeks ago when she appeared in a yoga class ((My Y no longer offers Qi Gong.) The class was too hard for M, but I told her about some other classes that are better for an older beginner and she has been coming to some of them. She now meets her granddaughter when she gets off the school bus and cares for her until her father gets home from work. The point of all of this is that yes, life continues, but sometimes it takes a few years to get back on track and head in a new direction, though of course she will always miss S. And I'm aways delighted to see M when she comes to a class and happy that she didn't give up after her first too-hard yoga class.

I remember feeling stunned that life rolls on, even though I couldn't understand how that was possible.

Nigel, as we have noted, I'm not a religious believer either, but am certainly culturally Christian and faith based songs still bring much comfort, and healing tears as metaphor. I think immortality is real - in memory, and in influence, even after those with memories have passed on themselves. The following brought tears to my eyes, as well as solace. Hope there is some solace for you also.

Life Goes On

Wendy, here's a favorite poem for you:

James Hogg (1770-1835), also known as the "Ettrick Shepherd". He was born in Ettrick, in the Scottish Borders.

    A Boy's Song

    Where the pools are bright and deep,
    Where the grey trout lies asleep,
    Up the river and over the lea,
    That's the way for Billy and me.

    Where the blackbird sings the latest,
    Where the hawthorn blooms the sweetest,
    Where the nestlings chirp and flee,
    That's the way for Billy and me.

    Where the mowers mow the cleanest,
    Where the hay lies thick and greenest,
    There to track the homeward bee,
    That's the way for Billy and me.

    Where the hazel bank is steepest,
    Where the shadow falls the deepest,
    Where the clustering nuts fall free,
    That's the way for Billy and me.

    Why the boys should drive away
    Little sweet maidens from their play,
    Or love to banter and fight so well,
    That's the thing I never could tell.

    But this I know, I love to play
    Through the meadow, among the hay;
    Up the water and over the lea,
    That's the way for Billy and me.
