Appreciate Your Prayers

My mother is having major surgery on Friday. She is an amazing woman of advanced years, and has unfortunately suffered numerous medical conditions over the last twenty years .  She gave up a very promising career in New York to raise her children in a healthier environment in New Mexico, and never complained once. She is also a survivor of the 1938 New England Hurricane.

Your prayers for her to recover quickly would be greatly appreciated.

      “My mother’s death supervened, and this was the greatest blow I had experienced in my life. I worshipped her; her image appeared to me unique. I knew that the moral values of her saintly soul were high above all that is human, and I could not resign myself to the loss of a being on whom I counted to make invisible the unavowable blemishes of my soul. She was so good that I thought that it would do for me too. She adored me with a love so whole and so proud that she could not be wrong: my wickedness, too, must be something marvelous! My mother’s death struck me as an affront of destiny, a thing like that could not happen either to her or to me! In the middle of my chest I felt the thousand-year-old cedar of Lebanon of vengeance reach out its gigantic branches. With my teeth clenched with weeping, I swore to myself that I would snatch my mother from death and destiny with the swords of light that some day would savagely gleam around my glorious name!” – Salvador Dali (The Secret Life of Salvador Dali 1942)

      “Ugly and futile: lean neck and thick hair and a stain of ink, a snail’s bed. Yet someone had loved him, borne him in her arms and in her heart. But for her the race of the world would have trampled him underfoot, a squashed boneless snail. She had loved his weak watery blood drained from her own. Was that then real? The only true thing in life? His mother’s prostrate body the fiery Columbanus in holy zeal bestrode. She was no more: the trembling skeleton of a twig burnt in the fire, an odour of rosewood and wetted ashes. She had saved him from being trampled underfoot and had gone, scarcely having been. A pour soul gone to heaven: and on a heath beneath winking stars a fox, red reek of rapine in his fur, with merciless bright eyes scraped in the earth, listened, scraped up the earth, listened, scraped and scraped.” – James Joyce (Finnegans Wake 1939)

      No matter what the creature in whom I have my being does, I and I alone am its master, my kingdom is not of this world, my kingdom is the kingdom of love. Does it exist? I will seek it.” – Vincent van Gogh (letter to Theo van Gogh)
