Waterfalls
It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Kristine

A family friend lays dying tonight.

Kris was my Dad's girlfriend in the 1970s. She is an amazing strong woman, and a survivor both of the Warsaw ghetto and the Warsaw Uprising. She hid in plain sight after the ghetto in outer Warsaw incognito as a Catholic.

I knew bits and pieces of her story, but she didn't like talking much about it. But now, she has written an incredible book, and I encourage you all to read it. It is worth every penny of the $23 price.

Kris is in hospice right now, with her youngest son at her side. Please offer a kind thought for an easy and peaceful passing.

It seems I saw a PBS documentary? or a documentary from somewhere on this sort of topic.

This generation is dying and it seems that some of the horrific things that happened back then are about ready to happen again! gosh.

I'm sorry your friend is suffering so. May she transition peacefully & quickly.
