Himself: Work is beginning to move along. He had time to swim, work, and get home at a decent hour tho it took a while to process things on the computer.
Herself: …and the quilt blog too: Swam, worked at the shop, heard Marion was home and receiving and Georganna was poorly. I visited Marion, stirred up dinner, and now am sniveling here at my blog.
My Babylonian Captivity: Do stop in and read Tugster's experience as a human shield. He writes that, “ i was captured in kuwait (where i was teaching in the kuwaiti air force)….”
Gratitude: This morning I am filled with Gratitude that Marion B was in my life!
After a ferocious but brief stay in the hospital, Marion is now home simplifying her life with hospice to provide the palliative care. I stopped by, and we congratulated each other on our birthdays. I’m sure I said all the wrong things, I made the stay as short as I could, and took the sniveling home.
She gave me two small jobs to do. Close her blog on Open Diary…I posted the final entry Friday afternoon but will leave it open for a while, and get her poems to Kenette to edit. I’ll get them there even if I have to take a decent computer with them….hers is beyond tired.
Life is too damn brief sometimes. Lee remains in the hospital with end stage bladder cancer, Jean9 just faded away, but the unique voice that is Marion is not fleeting even as she fades.
I’m not angry…just very sad that after all these battles her special voice will be silent. Yet this morning I’m better than yesterday. I know that I will be simplified out of her life soon and that’s ok. I love her, and she knows this. I bet a great many people are grateful for her in their lives today.
Two unique voices: Loretta and Marion, 2009.
