memorial day is our ‘memory day’

This Memorial Day weekend has us thinking about extraordinary friends who have passed away over the years, and the many gifts and resonances they left behind. For us, Memorial Day becomes Memory Day, rich with memories of lives lived BIG and generously.  Each of the people we remember was completely unique, one-of-a-kind, original and taught us valuable lessons about living gamely and  courageously.  They were indeed warriors.

In heart and mind today are Mary  Calder RowerPam Hunter, K. Dun Gifford, Eleanor Mailloux, Rogers McAvoy.

Who are your warriors?

    Even though I only know of few of these people (Gilda Radner, Charles Kuralt), reading their names has a power of their own, as well as knowing that they were warriors in someone else’s life. Thank you David.
