There is No Grief 101

Filed by Expedition Inspiration @ 8:04 am
Grief is not exclusive when a loved one passes, not the same for the next person and certainly not the same pain for anyone’s loss. I have recently experienced the loss of my Paul: my lover, my best friend, my future, my everything in an instant due to cardiac arrest. Cape Cape Lookout Oregon 2013   This event has prompted to give grief more thought than I ever have before. I have lost my parents, lost many girlfriends to breast cancer, lost other friends to other cancers.

What Did October Mean to You?

Filed by Expedition Inspiration @ 2:58 pm
  Every year in October we are inundated by the Pink. Let me ask you this: is Pink still relevant? pink ribbon   I went to one of my favorite re-use stores in Boise’s Collister Center a few weeks ago, and Naomi made a casual remark that has struck me ever since. She said, “I think by now we all have awareness about breast cancer. I want to know what they are doing about it!” Naomi is right.   I can tell you what I told Naomi that day.
