Tamson, just sending love and best wishes to you,I read a beautiful poem in another place,written by you. So wonderfully constructed and sensitively written. Might you share it here with this special crew?

All is well here, enjoyed a huge family gathering at the weekend to celebrate my cousins golden wedding. Four generations of cousins, their children and grandchildren and 2 Aunts from the generation before.It was so good to see all the little ones getting on so well together,shyness evaporated almost immediatly.Meanwhile us"oldies" found ourseleves on the wedding photos, did I really wear such short skirts and the big hairdo.

Medical appointments for my daughter this week ,for an unpleasant procedure and then Billy has his 4 monthly appointment and trial results,fingers crossed!

Coffee pot on....

With love

Being as I've just met "R1" on one occasion, I guess I won't be seriously tempted to blather "One of my best friends is...", but, between that meeting and our history here, I certainly count him (you) as a friend. For a good share of my life, I would have been really put off by the transition. Now, however I toss it around in my head, all I feel is happy to know that a good person has made a decision that needed to be made. Y'know...it feels good to know that about myself.

I finally came out as transgender on Facebook the night before last. Earlier in the day, my manager at the market made me a new name badge with my new name on it. That, and a friend telling me that the people who really mattered wouldn't care and those who couldn't accept it didn't need to be in my life were the nudge I needed.

I kept a blog that was letters to my dad for a couple of years after he died, my way of working through my grief. That end to your day that Judy would have loved? That was the kind of thing I'd put in those letters. Doesn't have to be electronic, the old-fashioned paper and pen variety work well, too, if that's something you think might help you.

For all the friends and family I can think of: "Today in Menorca"
Before I left home, I booked with "Jeep Safari Menorca" for today. So glad that I did. We set out into the countryside on miles of one lane "roads", between stone walls, that would have destroyed a sedan in a fraction of a mile. The driver/guides had made sure we fastened our seat belts; they weren't kidding. First stop, a huge limestone quarry, now like parkland in a canyon, where you could see the difference in how blocks had been cut to a certain depth by hand chiseling and then by power saws. (Most construction has been concrete for decades now). More country roads, and a maze of one-way streets in some old town. On to an overlook with a very long view of island and sea. Just after that we stoppped momentarily while the drivers manually locked up the front hubs for four wheel drive; we had come to the really interesting part of the road. Actually the ride wasn't as violent as it had been, because we were slowed way down for a ways. On to a lighthouse, with adjacent man made cave, used for armaments during the Spanish Civil War. An excellent, very Spanish, dinner at a farm with no other civilisation in sight. Final stop, an hour at a very nice beach. I laid back a while after being dropped back to my hotel, and walked a little way to one of a string of street cafes. Just as I started back to the hotel, the street resounded with brass and drums playing ...something...followed by "When the Saints Go Marching In" and other standards. I found the street totally packed with so many people following the band, kids on shoulders, that I couldn't see a sign of the band somewhere up there. After a few blocks they turned into a hotel complex and circled the pool, and I could see it was about two dozen young people in white shirts and dark slacks. They sounded like any professionals you could ask for; some of them might have been in high school, but several couldn't have been above fourth grade. It was a sublime conclusion to a good day.
          Then it got me.                  Judy would have loved it so much.
I'm okay, everyone, but I'm still kind of a soggy mess.   
                      DDE

Well, crew, I've been enjoying Naxos, if not as fully as would have been. There are now ashes in each of the four beach areas where we swam together "as nature intended" each time we were here. (I haven't explained that part of the significance to everyone.) There always happened to be a be a few too many folk around for me to walk along scattering, so I would sit and scoop down in the sand beside me and cover a portion of ash. That leaves just a handful or so at home that wouldn't quite fit in the little travel urn; I have to decide where those go. Some like to keep at least a portion, but for myself that feels a bit like keeping a finger as a holy relic. As Ranger1 noted, I too am finding a certain comfort in knowing these remains will be in places meaningful to Judy.

Word received.

My Episcopal priest husband's formal announcement of his surprisingly-soon (Jan 1) retirement is now publicly known in the parish (after an unavoidable one week delay). This affects me in so many ways only another clergy spouse of my vintage can understand.... And there are none near me.... my only almost-peer is dealing with her own equally serious stuff two states away... and there are now only a few days open to me to support hubby and parish full of dearly loved elders and a few potentially negatively-reactive folks. I'm at least able now to bring my unique skillset to this brief and intense moment. Sunday morning will be especially chaotic but an avalanche of community blessings and cursings can fall on us at any place or time-- some fell on him this AM. And we're clearly too old to deal with this all "easily".

His first plan was 2009 early retirement after 25 years' exhausting ministry. The market wiped that plan out. I started later, 25 years ago, and for me it's not early. I'm 65 and facing a family dementia history. No one in the parish knows that yet. We arrived here as newlyweds. We'd like some honeymoon time. Now.

Dean, I can't speak for anyone other than myself, but knowing that the ashes of my loved ones are someplace meaningful to both myself and them gives me comfort.

My uncle spread his portion of my grandmother's ashes over the cellar hole of the house she was born in, now a piece of protected land belonging to the people of the State of Maine. I will spread some of my portion on the osprey sanctuary after the osprey leave for the season, and take the rest with me to leave in beautiful places that she would have loved to visit herself.

Safe travels, my friend.

First leg of the journey to Greece this evening: crossing the border to a motel, to catch an early train to Toronto tomorrow. I'm running on very mixed feelings...anticipation, to visit Naxos again, distribute ashes, and spend some days in Menorca while overseas...trepidation, at making the journey without Judy. Thinking of all the support the "crew" here have given me, and of the waters that are rough for some of the rest of you.

As a complete aside: Sandra, I first heard Michael Row the Boat Ashore from my cousins when I was very small. My paternal grandfather was barely literate, and didn't read music. My much older cousins would learn songs and sing them for him when they'd come to visit, and my grandfather would then learn the songs from them. And he'd sing them to me.

Thanks, Rap. Coming from you, how could I not believe that?

I ended up, to be sure I'd get enough sleep to NOT bring a "bull" into a very tightly laid out "china shop," trying a sleep med that bought me one 12 hour sleep, and one about half that. A few more days for that situation to ripen, and all will shift back to where I can bring my unique skillset to bear on it.

I think it's been the waiting-- for that moment-- that's had my tight abs levitating me off the bed. I also woke, from that 12-hour sleep respite, remembering that when my son got stuck in the birth canal and they said to stop pushing until the c-section team arrived, I'd used a keening scream to keep from pushing thru what (by then) were oxytocin-fueled monster contractions. (You can't push with an open throat!) So, after the sleep meds wore off, I just sang-howled to my service dog every time my belly tensed. She'd wag, I'd laugh, the day passed. A new anti-anxiety alternative.

These meds run against my whole mind-management belief system and practice. I decided that since I'd had to forego that practice for the duration, a few days' use could be ok, and so I'll schedule extra time for that practice once I get out of the "china shop."

"Michael row the boat ashore...."
