Jeanette and her mother Dorothy U.S
When I can be in that place of openness and listening, magical things happen. Dorothy’s own ability to communicate with me about her inner life becomes clearer. She is laser like in her emotional clarity. She can communicate with her hands, words, sometimes clearly, sometimes not, with voice inflection, and with facial expression. I must remain present with her to receive these gifts. I feel an overwhelming love for her, and feel her love and connectedness to me. We both need and treasure this time together.
This complication in her life of having her brain slowly taken from her, has clarified who she is to me. I find I love her more powerfully than I thought possible to love anyone, I feel that love radiate to other relationships in my life, and I feel it radiates in me
