Walking away is not an option... dialogue must prevail.

"A good listener tries to understand what the other person is saying. In the end he may disagree sharply, but because he disagrees, he wants to know exactly what it is he is disagreeing with."
- Kenneth A. Wells

"I do not want the peace that passeth understanding. I want the understanding which bringeth peace."

free falling

It seems like this happens to me a lot... but I need to step away from the blog. I don't know if I'll be able to post for a while.

Struggling.

Dad is not in good health and I am suspending my job search although we are facing dire straights. I need to know what state Dad is in before I move any further. I took time away from work when Mom was dying and I fear I may be faced with another loss.

Take care of each other.

This damn Life thing keeps interfering with our spare time doesn't it?

My heart goes out to you as you face another challenge. I hope that you find solace and meaning in whatever the universe has in store for you.

I lost my Dad in 1980 but I've somehow managed to feel his presence and I readily reference his counsel in times of duress.

Take good care of yourself and loved ones...
until then..
xx oo
