There seems to have been a beautiful spiritual radiance to her last hours with you. It is immensely sad to lose her. I weep and feel deeply for you in your in grief.
A poem I will not die an unlived life. I will not go in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow by living to open me, To make me less afraid, More accessible, To loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance To live So that which came to me as seed goes to the next as blossom, and that which came to me as blossom, goes on as fruit.— Dawna Markova
Pera was a friend of Hazel’s and an old friend of mine. She is a godmother of the children's.
