It’s a Summer Breeze

It was a beautiful summer day, perennial flowers were still in bloom, her vegetable garden ached from neglect since only eight weeks earlier she was diagnosed with an advanced brain tumor, a glioblastoma multiforma.

Measuring Coupe

Having my 1993 Honda del Sol car for so long – 28 years– gives me pause at how “Little Red” lasted thus far and continues to be our Therapy car. It was the billboard that caught my eye back in the day.

Fourth of July Gelato Dreams

New beginnings for Yuri's Independence Days. It started all last week with the access and support for his strength and mobility, followed by the swallowing therapist/speech pathologist giving the okay for smooth foods. Italian gelato.

The Unexpected Present

While we were lucky not to get sucked into the hospital "system," we had to wrangle our way to make sure we have Home Care, an indispensable necessity for Yuri's proper recovery and my sanity.

Climbing Mt Everest

With another full, super moon shining over us, we slept in the same bed together after eleven weeks of Uncertainty, Hell Week, and finally Yuri, the Success Story, fresh out of rehab.

A Solstice Full Moon + the Spatial Cadet

Between the Summer Solstice and the next full moon coming up on June 24, there are a few people who know what happens to me during this time. I move heavy furniture.
