Wednesday morning 4.30 am, I lay awake knowing that today I will scatter my son’s ashes.
I force myself out of bed; dawn is breaking and I go out into the garden, where I laid my son’s ashes some weeks ago. Still in my pajamas, I lift my son’s ashes, in a tiny box, from under a rose bush and take them inside, placing them on the table. I stand, there, alone and dazed, not even able to think. There’s no one that I can turn to, no one that can hold me and comfort my shocked soul. Tears are falling, but I’m not crying.

The very first blog that I ever published on my newly established site was, “The Person you want to be” and that was January 26 2017.

What is Love?
In his book ‘The Road Less Traveled”, M.Scott Peck differentiates between ‘love’ and being ‘in love’:
“I define love thus: The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth. Love is an act of the will – namely, both an intention and an action”. “Of all the misconceptions about love the most powerful and pervasive is believing that ‘falling in love’ is love or at least one of the manifestations of love”. “We fall in love when we are conscientiously or unconsciously sexually motivated”.

I can to this day, some sixty eight years later, recall the first time I kissed a little girl. Although not one hundred per cent clearly, I still remember her face and her somewhat full rosebud lips. More than this I recall that she took my hand, held it fast, turned and kissed me on full on the lips, whilst I stood in a tremor of fright and absolute delight. We were two eight-year-olds.
