Sadness and happiness.

Emma, a friend of Edda's and mine, passed away from complications due to Rett Syndrome this past weekend. Just a few hours before Emma passed away, I was having dinner with her mom and a bunch of other "Rett" moms, scarfing down margaritas and sweet potato french fries and laughing/commiserating/complaining as all girl-fests are apt to turn into. This week, we are all heartbroken.

Overlapping with this intense sorrow over the end of a life, there is also great happiness as life begins anew for Bert - my newest friend on the planet Earth. It seems impossible that I hold both feelings in my hand this week.

So sorry, Doris. Thinking of you and Edda and Emma's family.
