This is a place for anyone who has felt the loss of a child. Treat this as a communication haven regardless of how or when you felt your loss. My definition of loss: miscarriage at any stage, still birth regardless of week gestation, infant death at any month, and loss of a child even if your child was all grown up. For me they all hold the same root of devestation. None are more profound or more "easily" dealt with than another.

“These Are A Two Of My Favorite Things…”

Oh- sorry - did you think I was talking about wine again? Sure, sure – Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Chianti definitely rank in the top ten of my favorite things…but on the last day of my trip I discovered that combining two of my other faves makes an enticing combination.

Recall my surprise at discovering a Meditation Room in the airport.
Recall my quest for a dip in the hot tub at the hotel.

Each was refreshing, relaxing and just what I hoped they would be. And so, after a long, long…long day of travel, culminating in a 3 hour layover delay in Cleveland, Ohio and a near midnight arrival in Albany, NY - I checked into a hotel and passed out.


The phone rang waaaay too early the next morning. Ok - 7:45, but let's just say that I don't do wee-hours-of-the-morning travel combined with sleep deprivation very well.

"No need to rush" says my totally fab hubby. "The weather's not so great and there is no school."

Ok - so now I'm awake, zombie-like, but awake. I draged myself out of bed.

In the name of "creating circulation so I could function" I found that I really liked this: (who knows…might make it into the top 10)

Apparantely, another elliptical perk is that brilliant thoughts come to mind. Thirty minutes and minimal sweat build-up later mine arrived. Cara – why not put on your meditation soundtrack while in the hot tub?


It sounded as good as a bad idea after one too many drinks. Yeah - that good!!

And - it was.
