The following entries (from beginning runner to half marathon finisher) represents a continuing journey of tremendous grief and sorrow, and of transformation - largely through the therapeutic power of running. The sorrow that has broken my heart open wide has in time allowed me to experience the beauty of being in the present moment. And of course, without the support of family and friends to guide me, I would not have made it this far.

If you have lost someone in your life, I offer these words and verse (some Kristy's, some mine and others) with the hope it may touch your heart and help you heal.

Eyes like two comets
hands like an anchor in my heart
oh to be drifting
like a drunken flower beast
beating my wings against the comforting breeze

Do you see me now?
are you piercing through the night
with a thousand glittering eyes
or a moon shadow watering the ground

Your heart the tangled forest
damp and swollen, nearly bursting
speak to me again my love
breathe yourself into my heart
let me rest my head on your shores
