The mind can take a moment and recreate it for you if you practice. In this way, nothing ever ends, no one ever dies, and everything is right there in you --and all this becomes a scrapbook of your mysterious existence.

"No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." --Friedrich Nietzsche

  • Richard Adam's novel Watership Down had an enormous influence on me as a child along with the 70s animated film
    • Fiver's visions. Fiver falling in his dreams...and having to come to terms with death and loss and change.
    • Hazel's death. This scene means so much to me both in the animated version and in the novel. If there was only this much kindness in death.

  • February 24th dream: dad's bedroom, but there is an ocean view outside window. He says to me "Lisa why are you so sad?" I say "I just miss you so much." He says "Lisa no need for that." And then falls asleep in the bed as though peacefully passing again.
  • watching bugs bunny and foghorn leghorn with my dad on Saturday mornings.
  • when he'd get so excited about the books I'd find for him. And say, "How do you find these books?" Not really knowing how Amazon works.

  • when we'd go to the military base so he could get a haircut
  • when he'd help with my rabbits
