Goodbye to Dad

Two walkers, December 2009

High School graduation, June 2011

Max and Pico

Playing guitars

and finally this photo by Antanas Sutkus. I can’t describe how much I love it. It is so exquisitely tender! It sums up everything for me. I want to kiss the little child and to reassure her. But I know she is me.

    a good friend once suggested i invite my little six-year-old self over for some warm kasha and cinnamon toast and healing hugs. best advice ever when i need comfort. hope you can invite yours over as well.

  8. These photos say so much- things that can’t be said in words.
    Hugs to you, Sister.

    A kiss from me, to you, the little girl who is hurt inside.
    I wish it would get better for you, and some of the pain could stop.

    Sister Wolf you have such an ability to make poignant picture choices (that sounds weird, but i can’t really think how else to say it.) The pictures made me cry, and have made me think a lot of the weird human relationship between love and loss, and although it has been said so many times before they are so tightly entwined.
    Please take care, big hug from the east coast.
    I like the idea of inviting your inner 5 year old over for toast and tea. lots of butter on the toast please.

    Sister, have you seen “Tree of Life”? I think you would ‘enjoy’ it (not the right word, perhaps…). I was immensely touched by it, these photos from your life and your words just brought back all the feelings of awe and cathartic pain which I felt in the cinema…

    The last two sentences have made me weep three times now in the last days, but I’ve had to come back and read them yet again.

    You are the most inspiring person on the Internet. Keep on keepin on’

  15. Liz says:

    How is it your words always manage to move me to tears?

    (I love your blog. It’s the only one I bother to check out pretty regularly.x)

  16. Liz says:

    I’m so sorry to hear about your Dad. Just read the next post down.

    Your boys are beautiful.
