My Relationship with my Inner Dinosaur

I was pleased to discover and connect to her, God. It felt like we had a Female Bond that transcended species.

Resting and Recovering

With Patty, back in 1981, I had stayed by her side day and night for the four or so days it took her to leave us. But, my mother’s slide was too gradual. Too slow.

Inner Sunsets and Twilight Times

Last night, as this great gift of forgiveness poured through me, I felt refreshed. Perhaps being half asleep made it easier for my deep inner unconscious to hear Your Words of forgiveness — Your Words of New Life and New Beginnings.

The physicality of grief

I’m not sure our society or our scientists understand the Physical Cellular Connection between Momthers and Daughters. We share mitochondria. We share the deepest possible physical connection.

Sunsets Coming

But, in addition, I am feeling more and more a part of The Web of Life. More than ever I sense that it extends further and deeper than we humans can begin to imagine.
