  1. A Creative Approach to Writing a Condolence Note

    BR recently found this condolence note sent to her years ago by an old boss from thirty years ago.
    It reminded us of how far a light touch, a little humor and some sensitive whimsy can carry you…. and how rare a treat it is to get a sympathy note that looks like this one.
    We hope some will take a page from her boss’s book the next time there’s a need to write a note of comfort to somebody.  It doesn’t always have to be leaden or patronizing or loaded with overwrought drama.  Some of us – most of us - hate that.
    But it’s not so easy to write a note that actually comforts. That’s why we’re posting this one.

    For sure most grievers are loathe to hear, "Well, at least she’s not suffering any more" – that seems to be the comment that gets top prize for Most Annoying.  However, “God never gives you more than you can handle”  is right up there, too.

  2. Cancer Journey Opens Up Her Creativity & Intuition

I feel I've been given a second chance to use my own voice, and am discovering new and exciting ways in which I can speak up. I no longer feel cut off and isolated, but engaged and joyful about the things I have to say.
