    Dulcie, I remember the day we met – you’ve come a long way baby. You never cease to amaze & inspire me. Xo
    Happy Anniversary

    • And you inspire me. You did then and you do still. Thank you for all of that.

    You are such a magnificent light in this world, Dulcie. Your last line will ring true for anyone who has paid attention to their life experience and noticed what it is that has changed them and what has not. Like you, “I hope I remember this. I would hate to have to learn it again.” Because perhaps all the important learnings – the things that truly jar us – come from some alchemy of pain and joy.
    And we never know whether they have changed us until, well, at least two years have gone by:-) Thank you for this splendid and stirring telling of this part of your story, Dulcie. So grateful for you.

    • I am taken by your spiritual chowder of alchemy and joy, Erie. Such a lumpy mixture, yes? And where would we be without lumps? Floating along in the sea of unaware with nothing to inspire us to reach for something more – in ourselves and with each other. I seem to still be willing to take the lumps, though I’m currently content with sipping the broth a bit longer. Thank you for your thoughts and your support.

    Dulcie my friend! I had no idea you had such a horrid accident. I’m so sorry. I can’t imagine recovery mentally and physically for you. One thing for sure, I’ve not met a woman as strong and brave as you. After reading your post I refuse to complain about anything that might make me cranky when it comes to this old body of mine! Maine in the summah w/plenty of salt air and haddock would do wonders for the soul and body! Would love to see you, possibly Sept. I’ll definitely be in touch. Love, Jane H.

    • Thank you, Jane. It has been a trip and a half. I would so love to see you. I will be gone until the 12th of September so don’t you dare come and go before then. Seeing you would be balm for my soul. I deeply hope that can happen. Much love to you, Dulcie

    Dear Dulcie,
    I am grateful I get to experience your anniversary with you, that I saw this piece flash by my screen and catch my eye. The event that you had the strength to walk through has brought me greater awareness and strength. I think if you often (shhhh…I still ride). You remind me of life’s precious. Of resilience. Determination. Character. You are that. I hope this day fills you with ease and comfort knowing you are supposed to be here now.

    • Thanks, Jen. I definitely get that I am here. Now to work on how I do my part. I am deeply aware of how precious this all is. Ride on with joy.

  • A deepening appreciation of acknowledging milestones and how they shape, inform and kindle us. Healing is only the half of what it means to recover. Thank you for writing about it. Besos to you both. Norma

    • Besos received, Norma. Thank you too.

    I’m so glad you’re a fighter. And a thinker and a writer. You see connections and make sense of this crazy thing called life.

    July 03, 2017
    • Make sense? Oh, right. Making sense of life means realizing that it really doesn’t make any sense on its own. We just cobble things together as best we can. So I’m working on what kind of sense do I like the best. Thanks for commenting, Alice. From one fighter to another.
