While journeying through cancer, Debbie embraced Nature as her companion, teacher and healer. She recognized Nature as the storyteller and was eager for new revelations with each meditation. Enjoy her journal reflections.



Fall 2018
Reflecting on the Softly, gently, falling,
perfectly cupped leaves, “That is how I wish to die,” I say. Gently letting go of earthly life to be transformed into another life, passing on my blessings to this world and my loved ones with grace and gentleness.

Suddenly, the wind ‘kicks up’ and this picture of gently falling leaves turns into whirling, fast falling, ripped off leaves leaving the branches kicking and screaming. I think, “Maybe, that’s how I will leave this life.”
