Not feeling so spry today. It is just the seemingly overwhelming worn out feeling, really tired.
Wanted to share a couple of quotes contained in a message sent to me by our blogging friend Meg.
“I was reminded today of a quote from the well known Indian mystic Jiddu Krishnamurti which felt so appropriate for my experience of your journal so I thought I would copy it to you:
“Death, talking about it, is not morbid. It is part of our life. From childhood maybe till we actually die, there is always this dreadful fear of dying…We have put it as far away as possible. So let us inquire together what is that extraordinary thing that we call death”
In a lighter moment I also recalled the wonderful Woody Allen quote, ‘It’s not that I’m afraid to die, I just don’t want to be there when it happens’, which also has relevance to my day to day feelings right now.
With you in spirit, Bill – and with your friend, Meg.
I thank you my friend
My prayers are with you Bill. Hugs!
Thank you Jill, prayers are always appreciated

(just cuz I can–cuz it matters to this one…..)
And Bill…..they’re both keepers, the quotes.
I know folks ‘out there’ get a bit squirmy because I do talk so freely about death and dying with my kiddo. It’s unnerving to them. And some moments it feels a bit unnerving to me.
It’s kinda like a lot of stuff in my life: The more I talk it, the less ‘power’ it has……the less I’m inclined to let ‘it’ (whatever it is) define me.
I am not this thing/this disease/this ‘problem’/this situation that happened/is happening.
I know what I’m saying–or trying to say. I just think I’m under caffinated and it’s not making sense/isn’t relevant to what you shared.
<– wordy one who doesn't always follow topics. LOL
((((((((((((((((( Bill ))))))))))))))))))
Rest when weary, maybe.
Remember you're loved hugely!
(this is two cents that someone dropped in my lap today–thought I'd share it with you)
Hi Mel,I know what you are saying. The more I talk of something, bring it out into the open, the more I am able to let go of its hold on me. It took me a while to really get a grasp on the fact. I AM ME. I define who I am not my medical conditions.
Hope you are having a good weekend.
