Imagining all of you closely gathered now, Nigel, if not physically, in heart and mind, allowing the love to flow and noticing moments to savor in the acute here and now.

I don't care what the song is supposed to mean, I only know what it means to me, so Jane, imagining you with diamonds on the soles of your shoes.

I cannot offer much. I would I were with you. If I were I would offer you this song by the American Buddhist ne'er-do-well, Al Grierson:
____________________________________

'Til the Circle Is Complete

Both the turning of the season and the ticking of the clock
Say the planet's one year older -- so are you.
But I'll leave the speculation and the silly idle talk
For another time and someone else to do.
There'll be a celebration at the end of every street,
When we claim our bread and roses, and the circle is complete.
So if destiny should drag you down, or dress you up in style,
May you never be too weary
To walk another mile.

And may you never cease your growing,
And your learning as you grow;
May the things that you discover
Be the things you want to know
May you gain in strength through sorrow,
And may all your love be true;
May you turn your hand to something
That you really want to do.

May your friends encounter fortune,
And your comrades find release
Though they see the hopes of others disappear
May your parents die contented, and your children live in peace,
Though the hands of desperation hold them near;
Should the future find you lying with a lover by your side
Or left alone with broken arms, and all your dreams denied
May your footsteps ring like rifles through the darkness of defeat,
May your spirit never falter,
'Til the circle is complete.

And may you never cease your growing
Your learning as you grow.
May the things that you discover be the things you want to know.
May you gain in strength through sorrow,
And may all your love be true;
May you turn your hand to something
That you really want to do.

May your life be like a love song in the act of every breath,
Be a poem to the purpose that it serves;
May you set your shoes to dancing in the hour of your death
And meet it with the courage it deserves;
May your shadow pass in pirouettes of such amazing grace
That the tears of those who mourn you disappear without a trace.
In the smoke that shapes their sorrow to the fading of your feats
In a ring around the rainbow,
Where the circle is complete.

And may you never cease your growing,
Your learning as you grow.
May the things that you discover be the things you want to know.
May you gain in strength through sorrow,
And may all your love be true;
May you turn your hand to something
That you really want to do.


May you turn your hand to something
That you really want to do.

Warm regards to you all.

Welcome aboard David. Nigel is quite right and I can only echo his words wth an addditional "Welcome Aboard!"   Very nice post too.


And Nigel.....Did I mention ever that my name is Patrick? My parents decided that since I would probably pick up the "Pat" nickname anyway they would just simplify the whole thing. Most people are surprised when I say my name is Patrick. This used to be funny as it took a few seconds for it to sink into the person filling out the form. One lady asked me once, "Do you know that a lot of people named Patterson are called Pat?"..........What do you say to that?....LOL

I feel like a fraudulent , voyeuristic marathon runner who has only just managed to jump on board a race ( holding on to his blanket) for the remaining laps ! Sadly this is my first contribution ...and it's just to say that my thoughts are with you ALL . I have spent time reading the comforting words of genuine love, warmth,hope and affection flowing from a group to a family and back again. This is a group and a family who are so bonded and I have found it all to be so very uplifting and inspirational.

Jane , Nigel and Ann are very much in my thoughts . I hope you are ALL able to find some comfort in this little poem I found which I would like to share with you . It seems to describe what MUDCAT supporters have done , are still doing and will continue to do ! I think it also reflects what Jane ,Nigel and Ann are also achieving in respect of their own lives even in such difficult times . Thank you for lightening my life through your heavy burden.


WHAT'S LIFE          BY JESSICA LEE WORKMAN

Life is a gift - accept it
Life is a sorrow - overcome it
Life is a tragedy -face it
Life is a adventure -dare it
Life is a duty - perform it
Life is a mystery - unfold it
Life is a song - sing it
Life is a opportunity - take it
Life is a journey - complete it
Life is a promise - fulfill it
Life is a beauty - praise it
Life is a goal - achieve it
Life is a puzzle - solve it
Life is love - love it .

Wise, wonderful, moving words from so many of you since I last posted, earlier today. And we have a new Crew Member (I hope I'm right), you are most welcome, Frug.
Maeve, thank you for highlighting my Music. All the titles that Maeve has listed were written when I needed the Sanctuary of Music the most. I need that Sanctuary more than ever now.
My Dear Bruce, perfect quotation from Dale Carnegie...there certainly does seem to be no hope left.
Spaw, my namesake (I can forgive the double 'T'!). My Father was always addressed as Pat, despite the fact that his first name was Laurence. I have dim, childhood memories of one relative calling him Laurie. He was Pat to everyone, including my Mother.
The latest news on Jane is what we have been expecting for some time. Her Oncologist has given her three weeks maximum, but with a warning that Jane could die at any time. Three weeks could suddenly become three days, three hours, three minutes. Jane's Husband, Ann & Jane's children are at the hospital as I type this. Physically, I'm ok, but mentally very fragile. I carry with me your Love, your Blankets, your Care & Compassion; everything a man could ever need to see him through this maelstrom.
       With Deepest Love to You All from both of us,

Fine idea maeve.....There are so many songs and words on this thread that at this point I think it ranks as one of the best Mudcat has ever had while at the same time being one of the most unusual. What sets it apart is what created it and sustains it. The amount of love and care embodied here is beyond what has ever happened before. It was all about Jane but soon became about so many.

As these coming days pass, our love and support are all we can offer even as we know that nothing else is within our power. This will be a legacy Jane has created through wonderful, loving, parents, that has given more than she would ever believe possible and has meant more to me and so many others that words escape me to describe it.

We hold each other as we hold Jane, Nigel, and Ann.......Wrapped in a blanket of comfort and love. And right now we pull the blanket tight. I love you all.

Jane suffered an extreme reaction to a chemo session yesterday. The infusion had to be stopped immediately after literally just a minute or two. Here is part of an email from Ann which sums up the situation:


My Darling Nigel
Latest news is that Jane has signed a paper to the effect that if she has a cardiac arrest ( a real
possibility ) she does not want to be resuscitated. Now that there is nothing that can be done
for her she has had enough,but still resisting hospice care.........

Lots of love
Ann xxxxxxxxx

Pete, you're absolutely right, that's precisely what she thinks. The sad truth is that that is almost certainly now what will happen. It is our fervent wish that Jane spends her final days & hours, free from pain, dignity preserved, surrounded by her Family, in a peaceful environment with caring professionals waiting in the wings for when they are needed. I spoke to Ann this morning & she intimated that Jane might be having a change of heart.
         Wendy, I know St.Francis Hospice well. My Father spent his final days there.
         All of your most recent posts are filled with so much Love & Tenderness. I am rendered speechless.
         Gnu, "Some things..." Without knowing, I know & understand.

         I suspect we shall be dropping anchor soon,
                      With Deepest Love to You All,

my Godmother too refused to go to a hospice, but eventually did, her pain was controlled and she came home and returned to St. Francis Atte Bower a number of times, her pain was gone and she came and danced at my daughters wedding.
But I know you dont need to be told that , you know how wonderful the hospice movement is. May you and Ann,with your wisdom,guide Jane in the right direction.

I've read & re-read dozens of your posts...a veritable plethora of Love, Wisdom, Experience, Humour, Anecdotes, Advice, Compassion...the list is practically endless. As the saying goes: "All Human Life is here".
      I love the blanket theme. A dearly loved Mudcat Friend made two blankets for Jane & Ann some time ago. Hand made treasures are so special. I am immediately reminded of my Father wrapping a large towel (stand-in blanket!) around me after he had washed me in the tin bath in front of the fire. This would be followed by a big hug, some energetic drying off & straight into my pyjamas & dressing gown...no central heating in our house, back in the 40s!
    Jane is getting weaker by the day. She is in considerable pain, despite regular analgesia. She has been offered a few days at the local hospice to get the pain under control, but refuses to go. Her right as an adult to refuse, but Ann & I know through our experiences with our Parents, she would be so much more comfortable & her dignity protected.
    I may be wrong, but I think this part of our Voyage may ending sooner than we had expected.
             Thank you for your Love, Your Hugs, Your Blankets, the quotations from Frost & Hugo.
             Please keep within hailing distance,

I've taken out a hand knitted wool blanket knitted for me by a special person in my life from my bed chest (handmade chest by artisan gnu) and it's to be laid over and under sheets and a quilt until warm weather in lieu of my father's woolen army blanket which has kept me warm since he passed. I also have taken out of my chest the green and white woolen blanket knitted for me by another lover and it will cover my legs while I type until warm weather. Me knees is toasty as I type. Feels good... warm... safe. Wool seems to be all the rage these days. Seems there is strength in these woollies.

And a warm blanket wrapped around you and your's also, maeve.

Soft-belly...open heart. Love.

Nigel, I'm rendered silent in many ways because while I imagine your family's journey is similar to what we experienced during my family's journey with my beloved sister, I also know your experience must be different, because you are a different family, and your personal experience is even more different because you and Ann are the parents, and I was (am) a sister.

What I can do and will continue to do, is keep pulling at the oars with the rest of the crew.

Holding all of you in my heart with great tenderness.

Janie
