When my sister in law was

Posted on Sat, 05 Dec 2015

When my sister in law was diagnosed with breast cancer, she'd had some removed and was told that it might not spread but opted for a single mastectomy, to 'be on the safe side'. She was 70 and I know that makes no difference to how you feel about...

Posted on Mon, 26 Oct 2015

So, so beautiful. And such a wonderful testament to your daughter. Your words capturing beauty lost and still existing I like that you included 'but now I'm content to remain'. I'm amazed that your skill with words and imagery just continues to...

A well written thought provoking...
