    Beautiful.

    When you're ready to smile, read Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit, a play he wrote in 1941 just after Nazi bombs destroyed his apartment and offices during the London Blitz. A delightful comedy--truly silly on its surface. But with a poignant subtext about how love endures beyond death.

    The play opened in July of that year, and it struck such a chord with Brits--surrounded by death from the war--that the original run outlasted the war itself.

    Back to work for me.

    Love you...

      amid the tears, read christopher moore's book "a dirty job".

      he wrote this after both his and his wifey/girlfriend's moms died with months of each other.

      his perspective on life and living and death brings awe to the gift we all have of sharing or just spending time on this earth.

      i read the book shortly after my cousin died - it brought so much comfort.  the sometimes strange way we view death was no less strange than how chris describes the transition.

      my heart sends love and peace to you.

      my mom is 93 - she just returned from her second stay in a convalescent home from falling.  she is mentally sharp but her body is beginning to fail her.  when we all look at our parents - or even our own bodies as they age, we are reminded that it is what we do with our "nows" that matter.

      i am so glad you were able to be with the universe when your mother joined that greater space.  i hope you go and re-do that bike ride in her honor.
