how did i get here?

my husband, my beautiful Dragon, died suddenly at 12:03 AM on 9 February 2009. there was a cold, lovely full moon and 3 feet of snow on the ground. i "slept" for the following 10 months and "woke" to the physical and emotional pain and torments of deep grief. i "woke" to find i had moved the day of his funeral and that i am lost. i am looking for me while i figure out the abstract, unanswerable questions that follow behind any death. my art has evolved. his death changed that as well because i am forever changed and will forever bear the mark of losing the only man i can ever love.
there is alive and there is dead and there is a place in between. i am here wholly in my heart for my children, but i feel empty inside at this time. i miss him. i have not gotten very far in my grief journey. i make no apologies for this.
this is my place, my blog, where i write to tell the universe that i am still here.

the Traveling Ambassador of Grief and Whimsey update

i've been asked about the Traveling Ambassador. she's obviously having a great time in her travels. she has been much needed, too, and that makes her feel so good.

she's been to Canada to visit with Suddenwidow. she got to see snow
and wished she had packed her Uggs.
she called when she got to London to see Boo.
and if you know Boo, and have her as a Facebook pal, she and Bunny have been sharing
quite a few adventures.
Bunny has been asked to visit three other women and she has excitedly said, "of course!"

here is the schedule as it stands now.

after Boo, Bunny heads to J-in-Wales.
then Down Under to see Widow in Oz.
up to Anchorage, Alaska to see a very young widow ~ El & I
then over to see FlyingWG in Arizona
on to Texas to see 3 women ~ M, then T, then R.
up to Portland, Maine.

then this is where i am not sure...i am waiting to see where two of our new ladies have been inked in.

i think Bunny travels to South Carolina, then back over to California, hippity hop to Chicago, and then i know our last hostess is in St. Paul, Minnesota to see Journey to a New Life.

then she comes back to me.

please remember to email me when you get her and when you mail her to the next person. please, either upload your photos of Bunny to your Facebook page and i can download from there, or email them to me at: so i can put together our Mixbook for all to see.

i am working on a map thingy to show Bunny's flight and dates. gonna pick one up tomorrow and do the push pin thingy with my own home girl who stays with me, Beach Bunny. i think that would be cool. dates. string. Bun loves the idea. very interactive for her.

thank you all for keeping up with her. thank you all for joining me in this whimsical yet poignant world tour of hers. i wish us all peace and light.

Looks like Bunny is living the good life in London! I have said it before, but it is worth repeating...This is a wonderful thing you have done. It really shows the goodness and compassion in your heart. Thank You!
