Heaven Gained an Angel of Selflessness

Heaven Gained an Angel of Selflessness

During the end of Summer and the brilliance of fall, family, friends and staff brought Palliative Hospice Care 24/7 to Fuller House, Mom’s Home for the past 3 years.
92 years of a full selfless life faded physically as the colors of autumn light up reflecting her love and life. It was an honor and privilege to be with her each caregiving shift sharing connection and memories while knowing that each time Congestive Heart was making her weaker.

The greatest blessing of my life is having Elizabeth Mary Carew Pothier as my mother.
Time with her became priceless in little special moments with a rare, precious and beautiful woman and human being.
This Fall was one of the best all time up North in depth and intensity of color. I began to see each individual view of Mountains, Hills and Valleys become bouquets of color as individual trees flowered in leaf and in my views represented all the days of ‘Betty’s’ life as they burst in fleeting brilliant seasonal natural display…Heaven gained an Angel of Selflessness and Love.

Feel her presence in spirit and love
in growing dimensions
Love Hope Faith in Heart and Soul
Truth of a life well lived
We Keep the Circle going….

Start of Day


Started so many days and have never been proficient just persistent. Know where to go need directions in daily vision and process.

This day took me down to the river above the falls where The Largest Most Regal Eagle crossed my path at the shoreline as he traversed the Falls heading East. I first thought he was my spirit amimal Blue Heron but envisioned what I felt. I lit a warming fire in the mist of warm water and cool air in stones placed to fashion fireplace. As the fire grew from kindling to crackling the Eagle returned and took residence in the habitat of ancient wolf tree and my life was present and focused. I stood at the shore with a vision of the wonder of this earth and prayed with him

for our future


Searching for a good honest woman

Two years down the long and twisting road I am grateful for all I have. Just need someone to share it with.

You are my joyous entertainer
Not just a cartoon character though just as animated
You are the all-time best variety show, an Emmy winner for sure
You dance, you sing, you mimic
And always you bring laughter
You are the talk show host and the sidekick
You are the invited guests; the singer, the dancer, the song and dance master.
You are the crazy and novel talent act
The storyteller and listener
Advisor and commenter
The clown, the standup comic and court jester
You are the Queen of gesture and animated face and body language
You are quick witted and on the spot of any real moment,focused and truthfully present
You are an original
As you provide joy and truest laughter to my life
And you are perfect just the way you are

Person In The River Dedicated to the Firefighter/First Responders of 9/11/2001

I republish this because I never forget 9/11 and all of those who answer 911 calls

Person in the Water—Dedicated to the Fire Fighter/First Responders who gave their lives responding on 9/11/2001—a 911 emergency

The twenty-four hour tour of duty was just beginning. After radio check the crew of three from the outside satellite station had started their assigned tasks around the house. The officer was cutting the grass, the pump operator checking and cleaning the truck and equipment, and the back step firefighter cleaning the station. Bells and radio signal draw immediate attention, and station details are no longer of importance.

The call comes in with two bells and the announcement over the Personal Address speakers “Person in the River,” followed by closest location reported and response assignment.
Crews of First Responders head out the door; the closest crew of three arrive on scene where they are signaled by waving arms of the location. Just past the old stone arch bridge the river bends by…
