girl:Quantum- a care giver's rules for staying alive while dealing with dementia

(a time traveling memoir)


Girl:quantum rule No. 23 – Stop. Rest.

This rule’s power belies its gentleness: stop and rest. When it all gets too much, giving myself time to rest is grounding and profoundly compassionate. Especially now, when I am in grief for a loss. Listening to myself is necessary in order to make the next move.


Decisions will be made – but not right now. We are all carrying a kindness deficit.  I am born of the bootstrapped people of the prairie; most of us are sleep deprived from our ambitions – both thwarted and realized.
