Happy Birthday


here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

Justin’s desk

This makes me smile. Even Newton is tucked away back there.

What is best

“…Maybe it is best to think of what we had and what we have and be grateful.”


Today Ben and I found a moment to sit by the river and talk about Justin. It was lovely and a welcome respite from the madness that has swept through my life.

Whenever we had looked at the ducks before, Ben had always said the ducks were mama ducks. But today they were all papa ducks.


Today is the saddest day
