The Next Stage

Dave passed on at 10:00 Sunday morning as one of his brothers read to him from Tolkien's, The Lord of the Rings, a most magical way to leave this world, I must say. We've really appreciated your thoughts, prayers and comments during this time - thank you.

Here's a quote I think would have amused Dave:

I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.

- Winston Churchill

Here's another quote that touched me:

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.

- Gilda Radner

It's hard, for me, to see ambiguity as "delicious"... but I'm going to try. Why not, the only other options are denial or anxiety, might as well find it as delicious at pineapple upside down cake or chocolate chip cookie dough.

Will talk to you all again this weekend-ish (how's that for ambiguous?).
