March 25, 2012

I love this poster. Justice made it for her Mom. You can see the two of them in the lower left.

Dominique taught me to be a writer, so I guess I'll keep on writing.

Today marks two months since the day Dominque passed.

Tonight, as I sat on the sofa with the rain falling softly - a rarity for Southern California - my fourteen year old Min-Pin, Rusty, sleeping peacefully next to me, and my fifteen year old black cat, Ruby, purring and asking to be pet, I felt a momentary feeling of happiness.

I take those moments when I can get them.  I savor them.  Mostly, I distract myself.

Tonight I'll be heading to bed with my latest distraction, a Stephen King book of short stories.  Most people think he writes only horror, but not so.  This particular book features the 'novella' which became a famous movie called The Shawshank Redemption.  If you haven't seen it, put it on your movie watch list.

There's a line in the story that goes something like this:  "Get Busy Living, or Get Busy Dying".

I think I'll get busy Living.

    I'm putting together a team of skaters for the CIBC Run for the CUre in Vancouver and I'd like to create a team for Dominique as she was such an inspiration to me even though I never got the chance to meet her, just talk to her online :(
