So I was reading \"suffering two losses\" and the exchange between Naomi and noah\'sark and it occurred to me that this, this site, this community, this is our ark. This is where we come when the water is rising and the rain is pounding and the sky is stormy and it looks like we are all going to drown in our grief and pain. This is where we come to rise above the sea of loss and loneliness and finally begin to see over the waves. This is where we come to be healed and healing; with and for each other. And as we share and learn we grow............. and it helps, it really does. And I\'m so grateful for all of this and all of you and I just wanted to say thank you. Because however bad and alone and lonely I may feel........... I don\'t want to drown in it. And I don\'t have to. Because I can come here, and climb onto the ark........ and it is making a difference.
