facing demons ©scott morgan 2013

Facing demons takes courage and stamina. Ask any dragon-slayer, vampire killer, or ghostbuster. Modern demons are not the stuff of gargoyles on the Notre Dame cathedral, as you see in this picture of Scott in Paris in his youth. Instead we create personal demons with our own fear, don’t we? When faced with our mortality we confront our biggest fears and hopefully vanquish them so that we can let go peacefully. Matters of the material world seem trivial as our emotional/spiritual interior realm becomes all that we really have.

How well we loved, how gently we lived, how gracefully we let go of the things not meant for us. That last sentence was attributed to Buddah recently on somebody’s facebook page but whether Buddah said it or not it seems to me it is a good way to live. Scott and I continue to be extremely grateful to family and our large network of friends who continue to support us as Scott hangs in there, letting go a little more each day. He is still very conscious but has traded in being alert for being painfree since dealing with new symptoms brought on by the spread of his disease and his remarkable endurance.

Please tell someone you love how you feel about them today. You have this day. You have each other.
