Welcome to my blog, Looking Up. I wrote a poem entitled "Looking Up" after a winter of grief. We'd had to release both our fur-kids (Chowder and Wookie) within a month of each other in 2004. The poem tracks the slow journey back from the glacier of emotional anguish to the experience once again of joy. Nature and time and the patience and love of family and friends were the accompaniment to the passage. The beauty in all this - the mystery in all facets of existence - these are the subject of my blog. Enjoy!
