The New Header Photo

carousel1Jake made this photo of a carousel, taken in London’s Covent Garden, during our last trip to England. It was 2006, the year of our family adventure in Italy. Jake attended a month-long cooking and language school in Bologna and we met up with him in Tuscany. We had an amazing three week road trip through Tuscany to Sorrento and across southern Italy to Matera and Puglia. Back in London visiting Terry’s sister,  we had been walking through the city at evening looking for Cornish Pasties. Meat pies. How can you go wrong with meat and pie? Together. A helpful pub bartender suggested we try Covent Garden, and sure enough, there we found the West Cornwall Pasty Company. Many varieties. They were pretty tasty. As we strolled through the gathering darkness, we saw this carousel spinning merrily and Jake snapped this picture. Now we are on a mad carousel of emotions, spinning through the entire spectrum daily. We miss you Jakey Jake. More and more each day. Ride on.

The Infinite Fountain of Love and Loss flows unceasingly into the pool of memory and sorrow. I created this blog in response to the most dreadful tragedy every parent fears, the death of a child, our 24 year old son, Jake. We are now on an unimagined journey along this road of grief and recovery. If you can find some comfort within these pages, than I will have succeeded in some small measure.
