Godspeed, Dear Friend!

"Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation."
~ Rumi
Yesterday, my dearest friend Anne passed away peacefully after living with cancer for many months.
Through it all, she never lost her incredible sense of humor, her zest for life and her loving concern for her family and friends.
She continued to make art when she had the energy,
to knit and read when she needed to rest,
and to inspire the rest of us all the time!
Yesterday when I was focused on my loss, I felt great sadness.
Today I am able to focus on your journey, Anne, and your new adventure and I can feel your joy!
Fly free, dear friend! And so long.

Until we meet again....

  4. I too am grieving the loss of Anne. She was indeed an inspiration. Had missed her for months and finally today another blogger friend looked her up on the internet and found that she had just passed. We have missed her for a time and felt in our hearts she was making her transition into another world of art and perfection.

  5. We will all miss her so much. I am missing her now thinking of her and her music, art, food and inspirational words. She was an inspiration to us all. Take care Silke.

  7. Very touching words, Silke. I know from my own sad experience what it feels like when a dear friend dies after a long illness. They will not be forgotten.

  8. DeLovely...your words, the photos. Do you think perhaps the butterflies are Anne and Renee making a little visit...sending a reminder that it is all within God's Plan. Reminders of The Journey and the Metamorphosis.
