A Life Journey that carries Hopes (Original title in Greek : To taxidi tis zois fernei elpides)

Fantasy and Adventure Novel by visionary author Katerina Kostaki


Her mind journeys to an imaginary seashore accomplished by golden sand, a deep blue sky hovering over her head, and a moon ... that was not the familiar moon everybody knew. A full moon with golden yellow rings! Located along the seashore a couple was playing casually and playfully, airy clothes waving as if touched by a gentle breeze. A woman and a man both beloved and harmonious! “Neleus - Neleus!” The voice called again and again... “Neleus - Neleus!” A luminous apparition approaches. She stretches her hand and gives her a bizarre, but beautiful shell. She holds the shell in her hands and stars at it apparently enchanted. A voice whispers sweetly – sweetly in her ear: “Neleus – Neleus!” She raised her head and felt becoming one with the blue sky, where golden pigeons were flitting lightly alike little fluffy clouds Her mind regresses as if a mental time machine into a swirling vortex returning to where she originated… It was a dream... She crawls within one big steep and narrow tunnel. She proceeds with arms and legs, her knees click on gravels. The place is claustrophobic and there is no escape anywhere, only in the depth of the tunnel a timid light shines. She watches herself from above and finds that she’s not alone! Behind her many women and men follow, a multitude of people unknown to her. The anode is tedious and painful, but she insists on moving. Finally she laboures up to the end of the tunnel where the light shines... But the aperture is desperately too small, so small that only her hand might get through. Frustration! “What to do now, I must go, but how?” From the outside another hand is digging the soil. “Come out!” the voice of an unknown man urges. “It’s impossible, the passage is narrow!” She replies. “You can make it, try!” The Guide says. From the outside another hand is digging the soil. “Come out!” the voice of an unknown man urges. “It’s impossible, the passage is narrow!” She replies. “You can make it, try!” The Guide says. 9 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM • February 2013

Suddenly, she feels being urged and her half body goes through this aperture till her waist. From this state she feels being squeezed, unable to breathe, to inhale... “You can make it, you can make it, you can make it ...» the voice of the unknownman insists. She forces and pushes herself to go... Curious pain! More mental and less physical... She pushes and then gets out as a baby coming to light! Her feet stand on a solid white land, and she faces sandy seashore in front of her. Groups of people arrive and expand along the white seashore. A breeze blows and brings to her mind secret images. She is deeply fascinated by the scene that watches... The sand changes colors and portrayal, as a creative inspiration of a cosmic artist who combines the colors and hues of the landscape. Her eyes are filled with the poetry of the alternative reality. Her enchanted mind listens to a similar motif. “Neleus! Neleus! “ In the morning she woke up in her bedroom having a strange sensation as if he had really made this amazing trip . Beyond that though she felt having learned something that could not even remember what it eventually was, but it was certainly a message. Later the same day she decided to But go where? The choice was not accidental. She looked into the dark closets of knowledge and remembered that there was an area that gave birth to and nurtured the demigod who she called Neleus in her dream. That would be the destination! A few possessions, a few personal belongings, and the decision had been taken. The great escape from the city that has being hosted her for the last years took shape! She crossed with her two children the Big Island, which connects through a strait with the capital and walked through forests and mountains, until they reached the river, flowing into the sea. The great river had the name of the hero. leave... Neleus... The son of Poseidon! A birth that came from the mate of a god and a mortal woman. Not plain at all! So it was, when the gods love, mate as humans with humans! 10 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM • February 2013

From such a union two children were born, both boys. Their mother placed them in a small boat, and dropped it into the sea. The sea loved and saved them, children of Neptune were anyway! The river itself is connected with the sea, fresh water with salt, the land and the sea... “The sea herself guided us like legendary heroes into this new place ... It couldn’t be differently. Children of the Gods aren’t we, our race? Have similar origin and similar history! Could not abandoned us, prey and exposed, like the two babies? “ A deep inner voice spoke in an authoritative tone within. “There you should go!” Divine protection shelters them. Felt the gentle breeze blowing in their hair alike an invisible spiritual hand... She couldn’t see, but she could feel it... They had to go, leaving behind the shackles that united them with the sterile past. She envisioned the seashore, at that point where the river flowed into the sea. It did not resemble to a dream. It was the white seashore she saw in her sleep!

By Peace Mother Geeta Sacred Song Art work by Maryam Morrison

“By aligning with Maha Shakti We align with Divine Will... Through surrendering to Divine Will The Master is ONE with the Kundalini... ONE with the Shakti... ” Eternal... On a Mighty Quest For utter Purity and Wholeness... The Energy of the Universe, referred to as Kundalini Shakti in India’s yogic scriptures, sparks a spiritual awakening within us. It is Kundalini Shakti that leads us towards growth, expansion, Wisdom and eventually...Enlightenment. Kundalini is the Serpent Power...the Power of Movement within the Universe. She is the aspect of Divine Mother that has created the Higher Wisdom of the Universe. That Wisdom lives in you... dormant at times, but unfolding more in each incarnation. She is also referred to as Maa Kundalini. Just as the serpent moves... Maa Kundalini moves your body’s circulation As well as moving the entire Cosmos With each evolutionary experience She moves your consciousness

Towards higher, purer perspectives... She is Wisdom in action... As a serpent flows, Maa Kundalini flows As the stream of consciousness in your Life... We are Spirit’s most amazing design, carrying within each and every single cell, all that we need to live happily in Balance, Contentment and Appreciation of the glory-us gift called Life. The Universe is not only “out there”, but also living within us. All of it exists inside you! This is the Great Liberating Truth that has been realized by all the Mystics, Saints and Enlightened Beings. Kundalini is the Divine Mother Grace that is our spiritual inheritance. Whether we call Her Shakti, The Holy Spirit, or the many names used by Mystics, Shamans and Saints throughout eternity, She is the Sacred Energy that vibrates within all things, moments and situations. 13 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM • February 2013

She is the vibration Within ALL Existence...

Trust. When these waves of pure Devotion surge through you, the expanded state makes it easy to adore God and experience your inherent bond with Spirit. However, the reason those experiences don’t all-ways stay with the seeker is because their Kundalini Energy is not yet fully installed at the Crown Chakra, which is the Spiritual Energy’s home. For this to happen, the dross nature of the mind must be cleared so that the purest Light can illuminate your being. At all times, Ma Kundalini’s main purpose is to move your energy-awareness to the Crown Chakra...and have it REMAIN there forever...instead of just visiting. Your soul wants to choose spirituality over materiality. It wants to develop Compassion towards others instead of dwelling in self-centered viewpoints. It longs to brim with Golden Virtues and radiant spiritual confidence.

Coiled at the base of the spine, resembling a serpent...this Cosmic Energy-Power lies dormant within each individual...until She is one day awakened. Once roused, Maa Kundalini (your consciousness) begins Her journey up the Sushumna, the most inner subtle channel within the spine...towards the seat of the Higher Self/God/Spirit. The throne of the God Force that resides within you exists at the Crown Chakra. Here, at the Crown Chakra...Mother God (Feminine Principle of the Universe) will one day merge with Father God (Masculine Principle of the Universe)... establishing Perfect Oneness within you. Once this happens, Balance is accomplished and the illusionary sense of duality vanishes. Chakras are mystical energy centers that exist in the subtle body. They radiate energy (Life force) into the body through The soul yearns to exist at the highest level of a Masthe subtle inner rivers within us. ter.

We are the Brightest, Most Magnificent Light However, karmic veils block the recognition Of our Divine origin and Noble Nature... Maa Kundalini is constantly sparking remembrance Within us Of our Divine Destiny... Her Work is to move us towards the realization Of ourselves as Beings of Light... Once Kundalini Shakti has cleared karmic files that distort our perception of self, all that remains within us is the Perfect Divine Being...One who lives in full awareness of Ma Kundalini’s awesome Power and Perfection. In Her impeccable Wisdom, The Goddess Kundalini will sometimes miraculously disintegrate certain negative karmas for an individual. In other cases, She will actually bring dark impressions to the surface to highlight our neurosis. In this type of case, as our imbalances expose themselves, we can become aware of them and clear our garden of dark seeds... healing our psyche. At the perfect moment, She also removes blocks and re- connects us with the artistic, creative, spiritual work we have performed in past lives. Knowledge we had previously acquired will surface as She tunnels through the millions of channels within our physical and spiritual bodies... removing tons of archaic psychic debris.

Setting us free of ignorance She moves us towards greater Balance and Harmony... Propelling us towards Liberation from karmic suffering... Towards completion of our soul’s journey... You can increase your connection to the Kundalini by engaging in physical movement such as dance, drumming, yoga... activities that allow your body and soul to FEEL the waves of rhythm. Dance movement is an activity everyone can perform, in their own individual way. If you cannot move your feet, then move your hands...the key is to create movement one way or another. Likewise, with drums, if you cannot play drums, you can listen to drum music, in order to stimulate Kundalini.

Kundalini is moved towards the higher Chakras By activities that infuse you With the remembrance of your holyness... You create inner movement with the aid of meditation, healing, visualization, chanting, singing, praying, praising the Universe, reading uplifting books, spending time with Mother Nature and contemplating Higher Teachings.

15 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM • February 2013

Chanting...singing praises to Spirit, is such an easy way to activate Kundalini Shakti. Although there are many practices that raise Kundalini...with many of them, such as meditation, or fasting, you must be supremely care-full to not overdo.

Regardless of the way you choose to chant You can never over-do repeating God’s Sacred Names... You can never over-do praising the Universe... On the spiritual path, seekers often cross paths with many beings that are detrimental to their Kundalini advancement. Due to their lack of true Knowledge or even outright evil tendencies, they are not able to guide Maa Kundalini because they do not adore Her and therefore do not truly know Her. To avoid the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual side effects that can occur due to lack of training, one should pray to meet and study with a genuine Master.

To open the gate for bliss-full, soul revealing, perspective- expanding occurrences, we must communicate with Kundalini Shakti sweetly and sincerely... serenading and dancing with Maha Shakti through sacred sounds and actions. Who will unfold the essence of your spiritual being so you can experience the Maha Shakti, the Great Energy of the Universe? Who will help you feel, see and absolutely believe this? Divine the form of Ma Kundalini. One of my favorite quotes from the Poet Saint Rumi, is “Motion ignites inner bliss.” It is evident that the Wise Ones know that no matter what path the aspirant travels, no one will ever become a fullfledged Realized Being without engaging in an adoring Love affair with the Goddess Kundalini.

May you ignite your inner Bliss with Devotion A being becomes a Light Master Joy-fully dancing with Maa KundalBy aligning totally to the Maha ini... Shakti The awe-inspiring Maha Shakti... The Great Energy of the Universe... The dazzling Creative Energy of By aligning with Maha Shakti, the Universe... we align with Divine Will...

of Choice The Greatest Gift (Angelic and Human Guidance) By Elliott Eli Jackson

WE tell you to create a new reality for yourself and your world; you can do it! You will do it because WE love and forgive you for whatever you think or have been told you have done wrong. Fore, in true reality, there is no right or wrong, there is no GOOD or BAD; there only is. Therefore, WE love and cherish you with a love that is sometimes beyond human understanding. Why? Well many of you believe you must be judged or held accountable for your mis-takes. This is not true, as you understand the term. However, you should be able to learn/remember that your mis-takes were not for your highest good or the highest good of others and not repeat them. With the previous statements, you may be able to see the simple fact that WE just love and support you, for you have freedom of choice. WE will never take this wonderful gift (freedom of choice) lightly. Some of the following information may be found in OUR books to you through Elliott - The Sapiential Discourses Universal Wisdom, Light Technology Publishing 2012, and From God to You: Absolute Truth, Schiffer Publishing 2010. 19 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM • February 2013

The one thing WE do not interfere with is freedom of choice within your realm. It is one of the most important truths in the universe as you know it, and not a trivial matter. Freedom of choice springs from the love that is all there is. Without it, all would be in vain and all creators would be under totalitarian rule. This is not allowed in any realm. How could WE love you if WE judge you? WE would not! How could WE put limitations on what you do and how you do it? WE would not! It is you that must, through trial and error, find out that which you must find out. You must find this out on an individual basis, and the only way this can be done is by experimentation. Yet, the experimentation of your others throughout time can help you. For instance, time has assured you that fire will burn you, thus you act accordingly with fire and all will be well. Further, the obsessive use of drugs and alcohol documented by many of your others throughout time has shown you that the continuation of such will only bring pain and suffering to yourself and others. Yet still, many are still burnt with the misuse of fire and many die and go insane thorough the overuse of mind-altering chemicals. Do you see OUR point? OUR point is that WE do not interfere, no matter what. Your freedom of choice comes into play with all decisions that one of you may make. Even your time of death, or if you harm yourself or another, all hinges on your personal freedom of choice, as you understand the term.

Other Worldly Safeguards As previously explained, WE do not get involved directly with your personal choices. However, WE have caused helpers to assist you. Remember the following phrase: “You know not when you entertain Angels.” These magnificent words, penned by one of OUR own on Earth, are true. WE call them “a portion of US that are not in physical form,” as WE are not. Angels of high vibrations choose to assist you in remembering who and what you are, US. They choose to always direct the proper information to you in order for you to make the highest choice decisions. They choose to help you in times you may deem as troublesome. They choose to assist you in times you are in pain and torment. These Angels are always with you; WE tell you more angels than you can calculate or guess. These ones have a need or desire to help and assist you and this is what they are under contract to do by their freedom of choice. They are guardians or watchers of women and men. Yet, once again, they do not interfere with your freedom of choice. Next month WE will be giving information on how lower vibrational angels can influence one of you to continue to make Mis-takes. Fore, remember, there is more to it ALL than meets the eye.

20 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM • February 2013

Human Help People help you to make the highest choice needed for the best outcome. WE will always inform you of what is in your highest good, either by placing it within your subconscious mind or causing someone to tell you. The people around you, i.e., friends, family, co-workers, and other associates, may and frequently do give you information and solutions to guide you in your daily life decisions. Do you listen to them? Or do you allow your mental to inform you that they may be “trying to get in your business,” or control you in some way? Something as simple as someone saying to you, “Maybe you should not eat so many sweets,” or “Did you pray and meditate today?” are examples of US informing you of what is in your highest good for yourself through one of your others. Remember, if the information will assist you in succeeding at something, you may wish to adhere to it. You may also receive information, answers, and solutions through the words of a song you are listening to, a movie you watch, or through a sign on the side of the road. WE give words of hope, love, and inspiration to all people. Do you really think there are coincidences? Remember, there is rhyme and reason for all things in the known and unknown universe. Therefore, it would be a high vibrational choice to pay attention to the high vibrational messages that the universe gives you through your others and other external sources. To be sure, if you ponder on the above informa-

tion, and apply it to your daily life, many of your personal choices will be better for you and others. Next month WE will be giving information on how lower vibrational angels can influence one of you to continue to make Mis-takes. Fore, remember, there is more to it ALL than meets the eye.

Willie Willie we believe was born on the Bahamas Island called Nassau sometime around 1997. The only reason we believe this date to be correct is from talking with numerous U.S. Army personnel who was working with the DEA during this time. One in particular was my husband Matthew Morrison. Here is Matthew’s story of Willie...... 22 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM • February 2013

Willie was one of those dogs that everyone loved. During the time from 1997 thru 2001 Willie was you could say, working for the DEA by acting as a guard dog for the UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters that was assigned to the island. Willie was your typical dog, greeting each crewmember prior to and after every flight.

I pick him up from the only dry place he could find, on top of the washer and dryers. I brought him inside and sat him in a plush chair in front of the cable TV. Willie did not like the animal planet channel but would watch some good action movies. One night when it was not raining he was attached by a monster crab in its shell. I came to Willie’s rescue and removed the crab from his nose. It looked like Lyle Alzado from the movie Cave Man with Ringo Starr.

It was his duty to ensure all was well and that no one bothered the helicopters. During any hurricane evacuation Willie was loaded on the helicopter and flown to a safe location, like I said a normal dog’s life. With each new rotation of personnel It was the beginning of December 2001 Willie greeted everyone the same way. that Christmas came early for Willie. Since the Veterinarians on the island Sometime around 1999, Willie was load- had limited supplies and did not want to ed up on the helicopters to move to a new treat dogs with heartworms, I contacted island to live. This was an exciting time my wife Maryam Morrison to inform her I for him. Once arriving to Georgetown on was returning with Willie and he needed the island of Great Exuma Willie began to treatment. explore and mark his territory. Willie once again rose to the role of protector of all. We had an Air Force C-130 plane flown in to move the unit back to Savannah. In October 2001 I arrived to Georgetown to work with the DEA and noticed Willie Willie did not remember much of the greeting everyone. He became my run- flight, since he was given a pill to help ning partner. Willie would lead the way him sleep. Although when we arrived to running thru the back areas of the island Savannah he was walking funny from because he knew the safest routes. In the waking up and had a very bad headache, evenings when we would go down to the and the top of his head felt like a pile of village area to have a drink with the local mash potatoes. I petted Willie and told folks, Willie would always come along. I him that when he was lying in the seat guess it was because he could protect us next to me his head was hitting the floor if anything was to happen, and to show us with the air turbulence. I put a pillow the way home at night. under his head to stop the banging noise that he was making. One night it was storming outside so 23 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM • February 2013

Upon landing it was time to start looking for a family for Willie to stay with. We tried a few but no one was up to my standards for him. While I was walking Willie one day we heard a noise coming from behind a fence. It was Maryam training some of the local dogs. I raised Willie up so he could see everyone in class. That is when he first saw Heather. She looked like she needed Willie to save her from the embarrassment of not knowing all the commands that Maryam was teaching. The next day we introduced Willie to Ted, Heathers husband. Well I thought that I would see if this family would work. Willie was not sure of this family at first. They always kept the shades closed and when they came home he had opened them. I mean destroyed them. Ted and Heather decided to keep Willie,

24 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM • February 2013

and he has been with them since 2002. And the journey continue for Willie as he goes to his new forever home with Ted and Heather Helard. In our next issue we will read theie time with Willie.

Socrates’ Cup By Munir Mezyed

Art work by Maryam Morrison

The chaos of the scattered mirage in the unforeseen water weakens me Light pours the mysteries of its anxiety Into the cup of memory And in the murky ring of snow I search for a ray that unites daylight with night I behold the nymph of silence shedding tears Over the flesh of her dream And bestrewing the seeds of my drunken melody Over the shores of oblivion … Thus the roof of rain collapses on the lips of the sunken streams In the mind of the wandering angel in my thought And the sun that stands on the edge of the sparkling word with colors Is about to fall into a whirlwind of fear… Suddenly I hear the seawater yelling at my face: In the word, there are rugged paths which will lead you to the gallows Do not read the talismans of my charm Or open the gate of desire for the blue serpent of the sun..! The tree word is fruitful with the fruit of sins And the chill of darkness warms you up

against the delirium of light And protects you from Socrates’ cup In the mid of very white fields Red Indian woman She smokes the sound of the forests Dancing for the sky to bring down the rain Taming the insanity of the storm with the hymns of fire And decorating her golden breast with the milk of dawn So that the neigh of passion may remain renewed… Her dream comes form alleys where the moon was born Carrying the tales of its blood Knocking on the door of the dead hearts Asking me about a woman who becomes a lamp Lit by the oil of the ode And its apparent eyes garnished with mist and legends …! Habibti Before the sky was born The ode was a blue butterfly that left the chrysalis of the spirit Searching for the flower of love ….

Jill Ehlers

Healing Touch Practitioner

I was born with a love for animals, but my love for 1 human/animal (my husband) began my career as an animal communicator and Healing Touch Practitioner. My Healing Touch for Animals journey began to help my husband Ken to make it through radiation for Prostate cancer with as few side effects as possible, but it became so much more, my Passion. I was taught a basic energy treatment by some wonderful Healing touch women in my area that is called magnetic clearing and I used this technique on Ken after each of his many radiation treatments. He had very few of the normal side effects so I decided to look into Healing Touch for Humans. I first traveled to Seattle’s Children’s Hospital for level one, when the weekend course was over I came home on cloud nine and was very excited to hear that there were courses for animal energy work available too. Over the course of the next year I traveled all over the US to the four levels of classes offered in HTA and loved every minute of it. We worked on shelter animals and went to some beautiful horse facilities to work with all differ28 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM • February 2013

ent types of animals. In between the classes I began to volunteer at some amazing animal facilities to get my foot in the door, I worked with the local Humane Society, Wildlife images (a local rescue and rehab for local wildlife), Dogs for the Deaf, Chimps Inc.( a chimp rescue facility in Bend Or, and did distance work on baby elephants and rhinos at a rescue facility in Africa. While my main clientele are dogs and cats, I enjoy working with all animals big and small. When an animal is in need of help, whether it be mental, physical, spiritual, or behavioral, I start each assessment of them by connecting energy with them, communicating with them, checking out their energy centers (Chakras) to see if they are open to the healing process. If they are closed up I will check for the culprit Chakra to further explain to me what is going on with them energetically. I ask them many basic questions (happy with food, family, exercise, any pain, do you need to see a vet etc.) and then I go through my list of treatments to ask them which ones they need. They are always honest in their answers and will admit if they are being stinkers and need a behavioral change which always cracks me up.

One of my most interesting questions that I always ask is “are you taking on any of your families human stuff” it may sound funny but our animals love us so unconditionally and can take on our human problems such as stress, illness, disease, and depression. It is always rewarding to me to be able to teach the humans how to cut that negative energy off from their animals and see the huge change it brings to the animals (and humans) health and well being. the next thing I will ask them is if they need any essential oils (the basis for most all modern medicines) in their treatment, I go through my list and allow them to pick what they need and then I go to my essential oils book to see why they picked them based on the qualities and uses for each oil or blend of oils, they always pick exactly the right ones, they are so smart. I then go through my list of floral waters (hydrosols) and ask if they need any of those. Hydrosols are much gentler than the oils and many animals ask for them internally as well as topically. In the case of cats I use mostly hydrosols for their treatments since cats lack an enzyme in their livers that break down the phenols in the oils so the hydrosols are much gentler and safer for them. I also love doing distance energy work and communication with animals all over the world and have assisted in locating lost animals. And of course we can’t talk about animals without talking about hard topic of the death

process. I feel that every animal should go out of this world as pure as they came into it so I love working with them at this time to open their Chakras with the very sacred Chakra Spread treatment to allow them to go out open and pure and peacefully which is also a great comfort to their humans to know they did all they could for their beloved pets. When it comes to their time I will also ask the humans permission to allow them to be on my healing team on the other side to help other animals. I have never been refused in this request and again it gives the human great comfort to know they will have a purpose in the afterlife.I love my work and have been a part of some amazing “miracles” with animals and I feel very blessed each time a new animal client comes into my life.

I don’t know her name… But I can guess From the look at her eyes She needs no name To be named, to be remembered… As a beautiful girl With her gorgeous eyes The beautiful sight And that perennial And very shy smile… I can imagine, maybe If I make an effort Recall from the ether The every soul’s memory, When she was a newborn All full of hope And gifts from around… The little and beautiful baby The adorable one… And she grew up pretty With that innocent smile Smiling always to the people Smiling always to the life! And life…I think life Always smiles back But people sometimes, Laugh at the innocent smile… And even worst they make you cry! And those pretty and beautiful eyes With the color of the ocean And the bright of a star Were early pushed to tears And the tears broke her smile… Smile, tears and eyes Were at once the new skin Of her tender heart… But hearts are like Muscles, if worked they become hard 31 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM • February 2013

Hiding feelings Hiding treasures For… They are just hidden And hope Hope is forbidden For a very hurt heart…. Sometimes When life hits so hard And the pain is so strong Only some illusions Float in the sea of delusions Eased by some opium Or whatever is on sale… And I wonder, how the poison Of tremendous drugs in the street Those always mutilate the body But in her Her eyes intact were! I don’t know her name Neither she, knows mine But we have stared at our eyes Since the very first time we met And it was love At first sight… The love that is forever The love of the soul Beyond the illusions of the flesh And beyond the hope To be reciprocated… Only a smile she gave back to me In response to mine, And we got connected For the every new encounter The lady beggar And the fading citizen Always on his car

Making the stop incidental to her Waiting for the light, For her to approach To give her the charity Sometimes a word, a smile and a thought Who knows caught by her In her daydream Maybe at night if she could remember me The man who looked at her eyes Giving her an orange, a candy, some money… And tonight I gave her my heart… I promised her to pray, As I did in my car And now I write a poem For her, the lady beggar With the beautiful eyes… She has no more smiles, She is weaken and dry Like a leaf ready to part Her sight is pure sadness And the sadness stares wondering This was life?

One morning as I approached a workout bench to stretch my damaged spine, a scowling man said I cut him off with my walker. Honestly, I was more concerned about the dead batteries in my radio. That meant I had to listen to the wretched music LA Fitness played. The man continued to curse and swear at me. I said to myself, this will end soon. I approached John, the front desk clerk. I asked him to intervene and he did. As I stretched, Barry, one of my guys, stopped by to say hi. Caught off guard, I acted momentarily surprised then said hello. Barry asked me what was up so I told him. Barry said what kind of man yells at any woman but especially you. Within minutes, about six or seven of my guys surrounded me to see if I was OK. Dexter went further and talked to the offender. I’m not sure what he said but that man never bothered me again.

The extended family gathered in a local restaurant to celebrate Roz’s outstanding achievement. Growing up, I experienced a family that was scattered and aloof. There were no family Fourth of July picnics, big Christmas dinners, or Sunday afternoon get togethers. Roz’s graduation party was joyous, full of love and closeness. I enjoyed good food and good company. On the way home, tears trickled down my cheeks because I never experienced the warmth and tenderness of so much family love. Thanks Dex for inviting me. I had a fabulous time. My guys josh around with each other all the time but I feel love whenever I’m around them. They are kind, thoughtful and considerate men. I am fortunate to have so many good guys on my side. I bet their families are too.

Speaking of Dexter, who works on oil rigs around the world, so we only see him every few months when he’s in town. Otherwise, he’s busy earning a living in faraway places. Dex as he’s called invited me to his girlfriend Roz’s medical school graduation. I gladly accepted. 37 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM • February 2013
