A Moment for Barry...
As all of our members know, Barry gave us some bad news on Saturday about his illness. Since we are a tight community - many of us have followed Barry for a long time - I thought I would post this photo I took while on assignment some time ago to let Barry know that we are all pulling for him. I ran upon it while filing photos (a never ending task), and thought about Barry.
Whatever your faith may be, I know that everyone's thoughts are with Barry, Linda, and their wonderful family in this trying time.
Barry has made us laugh, cry, ponder, amused and amazed us with his talent and most recently, his courage.
"There are more things in heaven and earth..." Barry, I am not one to have a lot of faith in doctors. I was talking to a friend yesterday who told me about his father who was in Hospice. The nurse taking care of him told my friend that he once went to care for an elderly woman who had only a few weeks to live. She went into remission, left Hospice, and lived another ten healthy years.
You are the kind of person who can beat your illness, Barry. Take those hands in the photo and multiply them many times over. They are the hands of your blogging friends wishing you well.
Buddha said, "I am the miracle." Barry, you be the miracle.
