Another Year Has Passed: A Remembrance: The Birth/Death Day of My Son

Posted by Judith in Portland on July 22, 2014 at 7:43pm 3 Comments

2014. Cycling round again. I still like to re-post this every year. TuD is the Home of my Heart and the loss of a child is a constant thread in the lives of women all over the world. It's been a rough year for me, but given how well my daughter is doing this year in "following her bliss", it comforts me to think that Huck, a little less than a year older, might also have been doing really well this past year.

-The Spirit of Zen, Lo Zen, by W. Watts

True creativity and alertness only arise when emptiness has seized the mind.
I am halfway there.
My mind is empty.

What happened was that I was not one of the lucky ones. I got all the complications and then some other things too. Am I the same person that I was before, still a person, still…

Hey everyone!
First off ive been tryimg to get on here when ever i get the chance however i am at band camp right now... Anywho i just need to rant. I really wish people would be more informed about diabetes. What bugs me the most is when i really need to use the restroom and nobody lets me. I rant about this because i was in sectionals with my section and i was 304 and had to use the restroom but the teacher wouldnt let me. This also happens alot at school.
