The call from my ex husband late yesterday was emotional - he had just been told that the cause of his stomach pains was liver cancer.
Death stalks us all, waits for us, then ambushes us; it wakes us up again and again.
Driving home from work I contemplated how to tell our two children.

Presence, authenticity, love, intimacy, connectedness, and the bittersweet experience of being a living, breathing, feeling human being.
It is the full expression of what is deep in our hearts.
