Dancing With Dahlia
Dahlia’s fourteen year struggle with breast cancer inspired me to compose a short tribute to her courage and to her essence as a human being. I was never prepared for the utter despair and sense of loneliness which would envelop my being for the next four and one half years. She will always have a place in my memory and with each day another revelation about our life together surfaces. Sometimes I smile broadly, other times I am overwhelmed with great sadness. Perhaps this memoir might provide a bit of insight and comfort to others who have experienced a similar loss. Enjoy the moments you have with your family and disregard the trivial. Life has a habit of shaking our world and sometimes we don’t take the time to walk slowly and smell the lilacs.
