    Ah, Douglas ... we all grieve together, and were so sorry to hear about your father. We had no comfort and closure on a few funerals this year too; that was especially difficult. I hope Jessica will find a way to less fear eventually, I expect it will take TIME and a lot of love and help from her family. It's very understandable this can happen; I was accused of being a bit to zealous with the bleach and sanitizers too ... and the first few times we went out, I was a bit nuts (Walter's words LOL). Time is helping some, but as the world's health situation is still scary, that fear isn't going to disappear overnight. I have faith our scientists will continue to improve things, but the scars will be there for all of us ... eased only by time and love. My love to you all; you've all helped us through a year in ways to numerous to mention; we are truly bound here by love and friendship and a common mindset

      I am sure she will jeg children are amazing...it's just that the lockdown has brought so many changes in our social lives, disrupting it all.
      And I believe we can all be more accepting of this fact and always think that the person next to us is -perhaps- facing a life-challenge and that we can make that person's life better just with the way we treat them.

      Walter's words are full of wisdom (nuts!) CathyKeshi and your are full of Love friend. Thank you!
      Better times are a'coming...I am sure

        Beautiful words Douglas, I was thinking about what you said today as I was swimming It’s my meditation time... How we never know what challenges the others are facing and how the only way to be supportive sometimes is just to be lovingly present without any judgement...I was reading these phrases recently that really stuck with me, one from Simone Weil that says “ Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity...” and JDMcClathy “ Love is the quality of attention we pay to things...”

            Sorry, I've been off the grid for a while, trying to spend some time outside with my gardening, and the weather got so nuts in June, 110 in Bremerton Washington in June! My poor cucumber plants have really struggled to grow up as opposed to burning up! Had to hit the produce stand to round out my supply, and now can finally get the bread and butter pickles done, but just got caught up in all the human love and kindness of this thread. Douglas, I am so sorry for your loss, and the isolation you were going through during such wrenching moments. My state is going back to mandated masks indoors on monday, and has demanded state and health care workers be vaccinated or lose their jobs. I fear another total lockdown is imminent as cases soar yet again. Looking at my beautiful Pearl's still lifts my spirit, thank goodness! Love to all, we are much stronger together, figuratively speaking of course, and will prevail, over time. So sad to see so many lost to this horrible virus

              Great to have you back Faith
              Thank you for your kind words...and in a way, when we focus on all the beautiful things in Life (gardening, pearls, cooking, hugs! whatever makes you tick!) we can see ourselves reflected (just the way we do on pearls... and our loved ones too!) in these activities that we love. When I do my garden I remember my dad at his ranch, picking up these huge heirloom tomatoes (back in the day we just called them tomatoes) and it makes this activity a connection point with him.
              When I am handling pearls, I am constantly reminded of everyone I have met thanks to this beautiful organic gem. The family I have gained, even if I have not met personally everyone.
              So, our loved ones will always live in our hearts and memories. Always.
              Have a blessed day!
