The In be tween

In between recovery from surgery and the start of chemo in another week we have had a reprieve. a pause allowing for the semblance of normality. AMP continues to do remarkably well emotionally and physcially. She has been getting out to films at the AFI film festival, visiting and communicating with friends, researching alternative treatments for cancer, and taking Marc to Orthodentist appointments. We are preparing for chemo, and hopeful that the ordeal of chemo will liberate us from the ordeal of cancer.

We are always in the "in between" the space beween our two dates. Where did the quote come from -- "life is what happens when we are planning for something else?" Our principal is leaving today -- fleeing to suburbs -- and on the plaque we gave him was written: "we judge a man's wisdom by his hope" -- R.W. Emersom. I am full of platitudes today -- but do feel that trips to orthodontist, a film shared and a family meal -- are all sacred acts -- the what we do in between -- the acting out the hope. Enjoy.
