It's been 7 years since [ profile] wilfulcait passed away. I miss her smile, her laugh, her sense of humor and sense of adventure.

But I'm happy - I'm happy she was part of my life. I'm happy she touched the lives of so many others and I only wish she'd been able to say around to make more memories and stories. Breast cancer sucks ….

Cait actually introduced me to [ profile] webqatch and it's another of the things that makes me really happy. [ profile] webqatch has been walking or supporting the Walk to end breast cancer for Cait and Bobby and all the other women who've had to deal with it. If you can, please consider going here: and following the links to donate.

Today, four years ago, I said goodbye to [ profile] wilfulcait - today it looks like I'll be helping a new baby into the world.

It's a good day.

PS - Check your breasts and testes, we want you around for a long time!

It's May 2nd - and I can't forget this day. It's been 3 years since the last time I saw her face.

I'm going to spend it helping Melly and her family get settled in their new place. I love that on today, there's a new beginning and that we'll be surrounded by the ones we love.

It's officially 100 days until Pennsic day! Yay!

Beautiful day

Today would of been Cait's birthday - I still wish everyday that she was here to celebrate it. But I am really, really grateful to have had her in my life. I just realized that the scarf I'm wearing around my neck today is also the same one in the photo of her from Pennsic ....

For my friends ... but particularly by women friends. This website was started today by Dr. Susan Love to try and follow and study healthy women *before* they get breast cancer. This is a blurb from their site:

From Army of Women

About Us

Volunteer Spotlight

The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation and the Avon Foundation, a
global leader in breast cancer research, joined forces to launch the
Love/Avon Army of Women.

Our revolutionary initiative has two key goals:

  • To recruit one million healthy women of every age and
    ethnicity, including breast cancer survivors and women at high-risk for
    the disease, to partner with breast cancer researchers and directly
    participate in the research that will eradicate breast cancer once and
    for all.

  • To challenge the scientific community to expand its
    current focus to include breast cancer prevention research conducted on
    healthy women.

Join us in this movement that will take us beyond a cure by creating
new opportunities to study what causes breast cancer—and how to prevent


I don't want to lose another friend. I miss Talia ... I miss Cait. I want to do what I can to help.

Please look at the website, and considering joining.

Spread the word on your LJ and blogs.

So, I had a moment this weekend where I became completely undone.

Cait )

So, it's Tuesday now ... and for the most part it's better ... I just needed to chat about it, and get it out of my system.

Last night I dreamt of Cait. We were off on some adventure. At the end we got separarted. I hate that it's true. *sigh*

From Great Big Sea of course ... from the album "Something Beautiful" Because the words ... they need to be heard.

Something Beautiful
written by: Doyle

Hey You, you lost your only friend
You can‘t believe you‘re broken heart will ever mend
But every mountain has its faces that‘d make you want to stop
On this so unwelcome journey from the bottom to the top.

Move along
I believe there‘s Something Beautiful to see
Move along
I believe there‘s Something Beautiful
Just waiting for you and me

I know you‘ll never count the tears you‘ve cried
Though you’ve asked a million questions
No one could tell you why
A single soul is chosen to be the one put to the test
But there will be some consolation for a heart that never rests

The years will make us older
The winters make us colder
And there‘s one more thing I‘ve come to know for sure
There‘s no bitterness that smolders, no chip on any shoulder
That a random act of kindness couldn‘t cure

Hey You, you lost your only friend
You can‘t believe you‘re broken heart will ever mend
But every mountain has its faces that‘d make you want to stop
On this so neverending journey from the bottom to the top.

I've had a lot of stuff on my mind lately. A lot of it has to do with Cait, and it's been impossible to talk about it. But I realized last night as I was loving and talking my daughter through this very same issue - that it was time for me to take my own advice. To talk about her and my memoires and the grief. Sometimes it'll be funny, sometimes it'll be raw, but it will always be real.
And it will be behind a cut.

Where I talk about Cait )
make_your_move: (cait & mym)
It's been a week since [ profile] wilfulcait passed away. There is still a sense of total surreality for me, like I can't quite keep in sync with the rest of the world. I get up, I do things, but they don't feel right. And I still can't really grieve. Moments come and they cause me to pause, but the tears just aren't coming. I miss her, I miss the thought of just knowing she's there and I still wrestle with my 5 year old yelling "I want her back". One of the best things about Sunday was that every time I looked up I saw faces I loved, or someone that loved her. And .. since then, I've been talking to/emailing folks I haven't talked to in ages. It's good to be connected to them.

Speaking of, my apprentice sister [ profile] moirinknits has made some beautiful beads to honor Cait and raise money for breast cancer research. Go look at the picture in her journal.

In two days [ profile] lapsedagnostic and I are leaving for Vegas to join my beautiful wife [ profile] ani_moore and my boyfriend [ profile] russell_moore to celebrate their 10th anniversary. It will be good to celebrate and let loose a little. Expect pictures.

It's a beautiful day - the sun is shining and the birds are calling to each other. Go, soak up some sun! Be happy.

There will be a celebration/remembrance of [ profile] wilfulcait this Sunday May 6, 2007 from 2 to 7pm. If you think you might be coming, please drop me a comment with your email, and I will send out the information. I'll do it as fast as I can, but it's been a rough couple of days.

Thank you all for you posts, your comments, you words and calls - I am blessed to have such good friends.

I'm sorry to say that my dearest friend [ profile] wilfulcait died last night while I held her hand. She was surrounded by her family - all of us. Words can't adequately describe how very much she meant to so many people.

I can't even say what she meant to me. The world is a dimmer place without her.
