My Article in the Huffington Post!

I’m pretty thrilled to have this piece in Huffpost Personal published today! Yesterday, International Women’s Day, was the anniversary of my surgery, but the conversation I recount in the first paragraph of this article happened exactly a year ago today. How’s that for the Universe lining things up!

I’d like to thank my dear new friend Brenda Keesal for connecting me with Noah Michelson, the amazing editor at Huffpost who took this on. Do pay Brenda a visit at her blog burns the fire: her gorgeously told stories of life and death and especially love are always an adventure of wondrous inspiration as she shines her brilliant, unique light into the odd corners of our beautiful world.

  6. Incredible article. Thank you. I once asked my grandmother if she was afraid of dying. I was a young child. She smiled at me and said that it was nothing to fear. That was nearly 55 years ago. I never forgot that.

  7. What a beautiful piece. It brought tears to my eyes. As a mother, I really felt what having that conversation with your boys must have been like…well, obviously I could not, but I can imagine some small part, anyway. You are amazing. So glad I found your blog.

    “But the flip side of grief is gratitude for having had whatever is lost to begin with.” So true. I lost my mom 2 years ago. It felt like I was reading her words and made me feel like she is at peace.
