I ask for your patience yet again...

My mother, Muriel, died yesterday from a possible blood clot related to lung cancer. (It was an infection from pseudomonas, according to the doctor. Not that it matters much...) There are no words for the extent of our grief.

I have taken down my e-mail address so Raymond and I can have some time and space to process our pain. I will do my best to send out e-zines and e-books as soon as I can, but I ask for your patience as I'm not checking e-mail very often.

Thank you for all the kindness you have shown our tiny family in the past. We are grateful for you, my lovely readers, for your prayers and good thoughts. I hope to be back soon...

Do Not Stand By My Grave And Weep - Mary Elizabeth Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
