The Grace Of Love A Tribute To Calantha
Published: 2020-6-18
One year ago today Calantha went to the Rainbow Bridge It has been a very difficult year both internally and externally There were many times when I didn t feel like I d be able to make it that the weight of my grief would crush me Somehow I did make it though it was often a moment-to-moment struggle with gritted teeth to survive Getting Lissar in January helped tremendously but I also needed time without a dog to honor the hole Calantha s absence left in my life To say this beautiful creature was here and my life will never be the same in good ways and in grief

The merrel also knew its wing had not healed But I could reach a great height once more before it failed me it said And from there I would fold my wings and plummet to the earth as if a hare or a fawn had caught my eye but it would be myself I stooped toward It would be a good flight and a good death And so I shall eat their dead things cut up on a pole dreaming of my last flight

I ve been putting off writing this as long as I can but I can t procrastinate any longer Calantha was put to sleep on June 18th My sweet quiet loving dog-daughter my dog-soulmate Your true task has just begun and you may never know in this life if you have succeeded but only if you fail As for her she is a story with no ending happy or sad She can never belong to anything mortal enough to want her Yet be content my lord No man has ever had more of her grace than you and no other will ever be blessed by her remembrance You have served her and loved her Be content and be king It cannot be ill fortune to have have loved a unicorn Surely it must be the dearest luck of all though the hardest earned She is my unicorn Always
A Very Late 2017 High Low Coming Out Of The Spiritual Closet
Published: 2018-2-14
The sentience envelopes me while I sleep I awaken with a gasp in a strange bed No it s not the bed that s strange - it s the same one I ve slept in since I was a child The strangeness is that I am not alone here in my bed I will never be alone again I feel it slithering out of the darkness for the first time the presence that s been whispering its sinister enigmas A living breathing thing - cold stars and glittering mathematics with the inhale hot copper and rotten fruit with the exhale Foreign from anything I have ever known Other I loved how the usually comforting loving idea of never being alone has been turned in this passage into something deeply wrong and full of dread I wanted to try and capture that feeling just before she was overtaken by the being she calls the Other of knowing the possession is imminent and you are helpless to stop it

Creating Rapeseed s Harvest
Published: 2017-3-20
I chose the title even knowing it might ruffle some feathers because I honestly don t feel like there s a better way to explain it to those who have been fortunate enough to never be so depressed that they feel they can t go on another day It is your mind raping your soul verbally abusing you telling you you re worthless a horrible person undeserving of love or bothering another person by asking them for help It s a prison only you can see and feel a prison you both hate and are afraid to leave because it s all you ve known for so long
