Five days after losing Casey, Kallie was diagnosed with Stage 4 lymphoma. Two weeks ago she started a course of chemotherapy that will last 25 weeks. The bad news is that the average survival time after diagnosis is 1 year; without treatment 6-8 weeks. The good news is that after just 2 weeks her cancer is in remission. We are cautiously optimistic.

We who choose to surround ourselves
with lives even more temporary than our own,
live within a fragile circle;
easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps,
we would still live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only
certain immortality, never fully
understanding the necessary plan....

The cedar tree has been revered for its spiritual significance for thousands of years. Its wood was used for the doors of sacred temples and burned in cleansing ceremonies for purification. The tree was thought to house important gods and to be an entrance to higher realms.
