There's Room At The Cross...

i walked into the Solarium and met a

96 year old former piano teacher.

She played beautifully.


Sunday mornings can be peaceful,

when one is not dreaming of pureed

potato chips.


Andrea the nurse was my morning

Angel. She called me twice at least.

And i went over as fast as my feet

would carry.


Plus+, it's only a block away. And

i know the drill.


There's a Prayer that goes,"LORD,

protect me from my well=meaning

Relatives." I strongly suspect that the

Matriarch said that Prayer each and

every Time i showed up at her bedside.

On both good & bad days. Yet, she

never made a fierce complaint against

me directly---it would've grinded her

natural grace and bloodily pierced my

Fair attentif Aspect. We held each

other at arm's length, out of a certain

mutual respect. But Love was there.

Ask anyone.


Rose Mary called and said,"Well, now

I have to be the funny/crasy one."

And i replied."You are nearly half=way

there." The blood of Hane's blood

attended her well & fully.


The Days are come upon to tell Great

stories of the rheumatic girl from

Framingham! Whose five children are

no less miracles of the shared love of

Brilliant scientists best met @ MIT.

And everything natural which progressed

of their especial union. MAC is holding

her fast from here to the past...their

Love reunited on vapourous planes^


i would grieve that which i cannot

Celebrate~~but i dasn't sully that fine

Example of what they showed me...

That Love is All & there really isn't any

Death or Parting. Just a pause in

perfect meeting; today they are met to

reinforce the Message.


i am glad of the music of the Solarium.

i am glad of Angels who know how to

puree potato chips. And i am especial

Happy that grief is short & passing,

but Love and Forebearance are both

strong and long=lasting.


Remember, then, your own fair Mother

who taught you all the same exact

things. They Orphan us Not.

"Hush - lay down your troubled mind
the day has vanished and left us behind
and the wind-whispering soft lullabies
will soothe - so close your weary eyes.

let your arms enfold us
through the dark of night
and your angels hold us
till we see the light

sleep - angels will watch over you
and soon beautiful dreams will come true.
can you feel spirits embracing your soul?
so dream while secrets of darkness unfold."

sleep well Miss Hane -

my condolences Slac - and fambly...

I'll don't know if I'll ever adjust to the reality of this never ending occurrence, enough to suit me... Sorry, Slac. [:(]

This is so very beautiful...I am so sorry for your loss.  Was she from Framingham, Massachusetts?  I went to Framingham State College.  May your grief be short and your memories everlasting.

if there's anything I can do, IMP me. I know you will miss her much and at times your mind will play games on you and the hurt will start over from Square One. Keep surrounded with love ones and appreciate them all. Please tell us more and more about her, honor her with your words, as you have, and will, I am certain.

oh and I am so glad your OTHER g/f has been taking good care of you....

Your writing was a touching way to say goodbye, Slack. I didn't know until now. I wish you peace.

I like what you said previously, that nursing is a verb.  I think the same of love.  Bless the potato chip puree-ers!

Adorable photo of Hanes and child.
