I have something I want to let you know, and it is encouraging. A few weeks ago, I was diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer. In the time since I have been back and forth to the VA for tests. Yesterday was my final visit to the GI department. They are moving me(my case) today to the transplant department. This is the only medical way to defeat this, but that does not mean it is the only way ....
We don't have to accept what has not even happened as being necessarily what will happen. All that we can do is to remain who we are and to love each other in this moment. We have gotten away from that as a people, but that does not mean it cannot be again.
So, at this time of Yule or Christmas or Hanukka or Id al-Fitar or Winter Solstice or the Day of the Return of the Wandering Goddess, who I believe I have found, remember to not only love those around you but to let that light encompasses all as one.
When we do that, anything is possible.
