I refuse to shred my mountain. I am gonna wait until the 8th anniversary of closing my company and have bonfire. Might even invite Revenue Canada. There's one auditor there I would like to accidently nudge into the fire.

I've spent several hours today shredding redundant paperwork. Although somewhat noisy, I found it surprisingly relaxing & distracting. Had to stop eventually as the shredder became hot enough to cook on! I do recommend it as a short term panacea...the operative words being: 'short term'. The all-encompassing reality of Jane & her health confronts us, which ever way we turn. As each day passes, that realisation bears down upon us insidiously & inexorably.
                With Love to You All,

Ann & I went right back to the start of this thread & re-read every post. There's something very special happening here. We still find it incredible that so many Good People are prepared to support us, intercede for us or simply pass the time of day with us. Despite the horrors that we read in our papers & watch on the TV News, my belief that Humankind is fundamentally good in it's intentions remains unshakable. The microcosm that is this thread proves that over & over, day after day after day.

Nigel Paterson,
I'm not especially good at visualizing (being stronger in auditory processing), but as much as I can I will keep your image - Jane standing in some wide open space, way out in the countryside, bathed in sunlight, with the rays of sun gently healing her - in my mind. And if I can "audiolize" some healing music to go with it, I will do that too.


Prayers and healing thoughts coming to all of you.

Genie

David, I'm assuming the 'Notre Dame' to which you refer is in Paris. A beautiful city that Ann & I have visited many times, including Notre Dame. Whether one is a 'believer' or not, it is virtually impossible not to be overawed. Your candle will shine some welcome light into a shadowy corner of our lives.

The piece I'm working on is inspired by this thread & the Good People who have become such a vital & integral part...my Rainbow Crew. Please be patient, I don't work very quickly, but when it's finished, you will be the first to know. It's dedicated to all of you...the best way I know to say thank you for your compassion, love, prayers, healing thoughts...anything you've done to make Jane whole again. A working title might even be: "The Rainbow Crew"...what do you think?

"I managed to cobble together 36 bars"

I did that one week in the 1960s. And 'cobble together' is the right term for it, buddy. Worst hangover I ever had.


Music is a key to understanding, or at least a method of sorting things out. When my youngest had that cyst growing in her head, I turned to music and my guitar because there was no where else to turn. Often there IS no where else to turn. And writing/composing lets ya say what ya want without the need for words, none of which ever seem 'right' anyway.

When you finish the piece, I hope to hear it.

Creating something new, which in my case, happens to be a piece of Music, takes me to a 'different place' for an hour or two & reminds me that despite everything, Life DOES go on. Over the past few months, our Lives have been changed in ways we could never have imagined or anticipated, but by acknowledging the fact that "Life Goes On", actually enables us to support Jane all the better.

We've just made 200 posts...that really is quite amazing. And I forgot to say earlier that I haven't composed anything new for months, until yesterday afternoon, when I managed to cobble together 36 bars of an instrumental piece. A modest beginning, but at least it's a start. I really felt the need to create.

Sheesh, Maeve, tell me NOW!


Nigel, Ann and Jane surely know by now there's a gang of us pulling for all of them. And we'll continue to keep doing so. Our mamas didn't raise no quitters (and neither did theirs). Good people do good things. This is a good thing.

We'll keep taking care of the thoughts and prayers for y'all and you three take care of business.

The gang.

PS I don't presume to speak for the group, and I pondered this post for a while as a result, but I think it safe enough given the quality of the folk hereabouts.

I'm not a "God-fearing" man...not too keen on labels either, but if pushed, I would describe myself as a Humanist. I worship at the church of Life & Nature. I do, however, believe fervently in the power & integrity of The Human Condition, which includes our desire & ability to 'do whatever is needed to alleviate the suffering of others'. This thread underscores that 'desire & ability' in ways I have rarely experienced in my 64 years. Please continue with your intercessions, your prayers, your meditations, your positive thinking...whatever it is you do when you reach out to that 'needy other'. Ann & I try to visualise all of you every day...a sea of smiling, welcoming, compassionate faces. Knowing you're all there is a great comfort...stay close,

As jacqui said, that is a GREAT visualisation to hold onto!

Your poem went straight to my heart. How beautiful, loving, and poignant. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

Our part of Colorado is laughingly called the Banana Belt for its mild winters. Yesterday we had a raw, cold wind with huge grey clouds filling the sky. This morning we woke to 2-3 inches of snow, BUT a bright sunny, deeply blue Colorado sky and it was gloriously beautiful. Most of the snow is gone and the sun has remained.

Each night, my grandson and I read to one another over the telephone, then I sing him a couple of lullies, and we say a prayer of giving thanks, part of which includes, "...we give thanks for blessings for all of our families and friends..." May it be so for all of us, esp. Jane, Nigel, and Ann.
