  2. Yes I do feel its a duty as its expressed in the 2 commandments that Jesus offered to us. More that that, I feel compassion is a greater motivator transforming and extending our self interest to enlighted self interest–a self that includes all.

    As I read your love story, compassion flooded me. Both yours and mine. Compassion for the deer, for you, helpless as you witnessed the situation of the deer as well as your sister, Cindy Love,for me, for the world. It moves me into a deeper place of wholeness as it holds both the terror and the beauty. out of that moment a peace opens, a stillness. There is a razons edge here somewhere as well. Sitting on that edge requires me to almost lock on to that place of awareness. If I let go i’ll fall into a narrative and loose the stillness. I trust that stillness. Something wonderful will move out it, just as it did for you—your story of love.

    Thank you

    • Ahhhhh, Beautiful Maureen.The shared awareness of intense vulnerability, almost powerlessness and peace/stillness. I know you know that in your depths and if I go into the narrative of you, you lose the power of your presence.
      Beautiful Maureen and so inspiring. Thank you for sharing this.

  3. Melody, I really enjoyed reading this and smile when I think of what a caring, mindful and loving neighbor we have in you! Your thoughts remind me in part of Brene Brown’s message of strength in vulnerability…credit belongs to those who are in the ring, those who allow themselves to be seen and who will not allow their fear of failure/vulnerability to hold them back. With vulnerability comes great courage and it sounds like your sister embodied that!
