So fellow travelers, this journey we call life sometimes takes us to a passage difficult to navigate. One of my Bedlam Farm friends Denise Gainey, has been journaling about just such a time. Her writing is powerfully honest, without the slightest hint of self pity. I have learned valuable lessons from her experience. They are lessons I will carry with me as my parents and mother-in-law move closer to the inevitable crossroads Denise writes about. I dedicate today’s haiku to two beautiful women holding fast through the waves of time.
Flowers on the path
Love blossoms along the way
Easing journeys end
