February 7

February 7 – Today is my father’s birthday. It’s also the day for his transition to home hospice. This is a celebration tinged with sadness, but above all, we are grateful and feeling blessed.

This is one of the to-be-remembered catalysts of shared family memories because this week siblings are coming home to help and cousins and nephews and nieces are in the loop, via phone and the social web.

This is our latest in family vacations and it’s deeply sad and joyous. We are feeling blessed to have this sacred time together.

March 8 – Feeling the love today with family and friends. Yesterday my father passed away.


Hospice = Type of care and philosophy of care that focuses on the palliation of the chronically ill and attending to their emotional and spiritual needs.

Willful Ignorance

The lyrics of Black and White Year’s Up:

i’m afraid silence is the song of the next age.
what we don’t know won’t hurt us.
what we don’t know won’t keep us up at night.
what we don’t know won’t hurt us. but we don’t know.
what you don’t know won’t hurt you.
what you don’t know won’t have you terrified.
what you don’t know won’t hurt you. but you don’t know.
and you won’t know that you don’t.

Buzzword Bingo: Willful Ignorance = Intentional and blatant avoidance, disregard or disagreement with facts
