I "meandered through" these wonderful narratives by seeing a title that resonated and then reading it. Each reading called up experiences, ideas and observations my friend and I have had and shared with each other through the years."Although the World is Full of Suffering" brought tears of letting go washing away the years I had spent 'wanting to please her [my mother]and her [my mother] wanting to direct how my life should go' as so beautifully expressed by Morgan Zo-Callahan. Then "Death Too Is a Gift" brought up conversations with my friend about when she volunteered at Hospice in Washington state and about when I visited, sometimes late at night, relatives, friends and Church loved ones at our Hospice. I had a lump in my throat as I sent up prayers to the people in our town who enabled Hospice to come to the U S and began the first one in our town of Branford, CT. "Not an Emergency, an Emergence" Hastening Death - I thought would be about Suicide which has been the choice of friends periodically since I was in High School. It was instead about choosing the days as our lives are ending and brought tears of release of anger as I read it; because when President Bush came back to sign the special legislation to attempt to keep Terri Schaivo alive my friend from Church was struggling to stay alive with cancer but couldn't continue treatments because the cap had been reached on her insurance and SSI wasn't available because Bush had signed a bill passed before he left Washington D C that had cut considerably the SSI dollars that were used to pay for Schaivo's machines and might have helped my friend continue treatment. She died a year later. With this narrative my tears let her go and I even found forgiveness for The Congress. Anger is best served only when it is turned into constructive action, like creating a "Living Will" as this story describes. The "Lonely Search for Meaning" helped me appreciate my friend because it has not been lonely for my friend and I for even now, since by phone we constantly share our thoughts about the meaning of our respective journeys and thank LIFE for each other's friendship. And how we laughed at the narrative titled, "Always Making Dates in My Mind that My Body Can't Keep". How especially true that is as my friend's body joins the age my body reached in June this year of almost 70. Now that my friend is receiving her copy of "Intimate Meanderings", we can select a narrative, read it and share together what feelings and thoughts it reflects in each of us. Thank You, Morgan Zo-Callahan and Friends. What a wonderful gift for all of us!
