May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
Bobo split the Earth scene 3/13/07. I found him at 4:30 pm. He spent the morning with his dad & in the car doing guy stuff after breakfast. They came home; Drew had to do a drop off; so after lunch with me, Bobo had a bath and wrestled with his toys. Some 1 & 1/2 hours later, I was walking by the door to the living room I saw a spot of red on the floor. Birds don't sleep on the floor of anything, but that was what it looked like at first glance. How I wish that's how it turned out.
I am so at a loss. For over 8 years now I have barely made a move in my house without some thought of Bobo. You see he was like having a 2 year old who would never get any older but his hearing was most acute.Emotionally he would always behave a 2 year old. He had no concept of "time", the time it takes to scrabble eggs he wanted so bad. Or whatever it was that my feeble human endeavors tried to do to please him at any given time, just not fast enough.

How I lived to hear his sigh of approval,his sweet way of saying "sweet" when he liked what you gave him. Or the yuuummmms as he tore apart whatever it was he was eating, if he liked it.

Just as with Abby; I thought I had so much longer. I didn't see it coming. Thought we had at least another 20 years. Looked forward to how much you'd have to say over the years. Just last week you said as plain as day as I walked in from being outside, "What have you been up to?" I laughed, and told you. Some "things" you said would take me months to figure out. Then one day I'd hear it as clear as a bell! And I'd marvel at how well you said that, or how much that sounded like my own voice recorded. Not always something one wants to hear, themselves being played back.
So much to say about Bobo. Such a personality. I am part of all I have come to know. And I feel you Bobo, I hear you, and I rejoice in your new song of freedom.

Much more to say as "time" goes by....

Dear stranger,

This is very sad news.
Sending you prayers of peace and comfort, and as yoko mentioned, your friend is flying with the angels now.


Emily Dickinson wrote:

"Hope" is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -

And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -

I've heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of Me.

Just as the sun
Sees the world by its own light
And yet remains free from its darkness,
So the Self,
The inner being of all beings,
Remains free from the sorrows
Of that in which it is embodied.

There is only one Power -
And it is that which is in the hearts of all.
Who knows this to be true
Gains eternal peace.

~From the Katha Upanishad

Dear stranger,
I am deeply sorry for your loss.
My prayers are with you and with your departed friend.


From a poem by Dan Atcheson

...Paradise is lovelier than you can comprehend.
No pain or grief, no tears or fears, and life will have no end.
God gave to man His only Son, to cover all his sins.
So why would God withhold from you, your pure and loving friend?”

Selfish in personal grief, I have avoided this post & place and I am sorry if I've offended any one.
I thank you deeply for you love & good tidings. I am still in a state of healing, everyday goes better & better.
Transformation & change, a constant in life, sometimes takes over, leaving my head spinning.
Courage, I say and lift my face to the Sun.
