The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

I hope to write some blogs about my Mom and Dad as a tribute to them,
and to share a little of my love for them. I don't know if I'm ready to
do this heart still hurts.

My Mom used to tell me stories about her amazing life and I would suggest
that she write them down. She told me she started to..I hope I can find her
writings. i had also planned to video her talking about her life, but didn't.
I should have..I always learn the hard way.

Maybe I'll write the book of my Mom and Dad's lives.

I think you should try to write through the pain. My experience is that it is very therapeutic. Plus, that's when your feelings are so huge and so rich--it's a gold mine in terms of truly capturing the emotion of it all. Good to see you back, Kevin. xoxo Ruth

What Ruth said.

I'm so glad I wrote some of the stuff I did when I was deep in mourning- simply because during that time, we're steeped in the very essence of our loved ones whom we've lost- more so than at any other time...

I cherish those pieces more than any other...

Ruth & Syd..I'm trying to find my way through a lot of pain and fear. I'm going to try to put down my feelings. Thank you for your friendship and support.

Kevin, I'm with Ruth and Syd in encouraging you to do this. The last time I did something like it was when my most beloved dog died. I didn't want to forget a single thing about him, so I began to write everything I could remember about him. I wrote several pages every night, and a week later, I had a 50-page biography of him. It underscored for me how much he had enriched my life in just the three years I had him.

I wish I had done the same when my mother died. That was twenty-two years ago. I'd probably still be working on it!

@NJ..I'd love to read your writings about your dog. I'm thinking about writing a book about my parents. Maybe, we'll see.
