Life and Death

My apologies for infrequent posting and lack of original content.

I’ve been busy at the bookstore and was offered a job yesterday as an academic coach. Life has been very full, volunteering with the Centre for Living With Dying and also getting a new coaching client. This has all emerged in the past two weeks. I was also coordinating our wedding and preparing for Christmas. I love this holiday. I love the lights, the tree, the symbolism, the colors. We were expecting my brother and sister-in-law for Christmas, our first here in California in this lovely little rental house.

But tonight we have received calamitous news. My fiancé’s father, who has been battling lymphoma since February and just entered remission, was hospitalized last night. We have just learned tonight that he has brain cancer. So my world has turned inside-out, upside-down, and over.

I will not be writing or posting here for awhile. I’m sorry. I can be reached by email at, and I do plan to return to sharing A Mindful Life at some point. Please stop by now and then to see when I’m back.

May you know peace and love.
