Peace Be With You

A Warrior Woman has left this world.

She slew her Dragon.

Let us celebrate her life.
Let us celebrate her release from its tortures.
Let us celebrate her beauty.
Let us celebrate her release from prison.

“I hope my death is peaceful,
And I hope never to return.”
–Frida Kalho

    • Thanks, Kat. She was a fellow bipolar blogger. I followed her blog and had some discussions with her, but didn’t know her well. Her blog is still up, if you want to check out her legacy of wisdom. Blahpolar is her blog (and her name). Sorry, I can’t do links on this phone 😦

  7. sorry for your loss, sweetie. I love the Kalho quote. I will be seeing her exhibit at the MFA soon, if I don’t die before then. Damn pain has dictated my life for too long.

  8. Blahpolar will be greatly missed. At least she is no longer in unremitting pain of deep bipolar depression. She sought relief and could not find it. Send you my condolences and love. Share in the grief.

    • Condolences to all who will miss her, and hopes that her soul is finally at peace, without pain. I’ve been struck lately at how well we care for our animals in pain, while our fear of divine retribution or reincarnation keeps humans in agony. Somehow the logic defies logic, but my religion holds that God is beyond logic, that logic is a human phenomenon and does not apply to the Devine. I clearly cannot understand that, but I hope it’s not true, because I myself do not know how long I’ll be able to tolerate life.

      • I do not believe that God punishes humans who commit suicide or decide to take their lives rather than live in unremitting pain. God is more compassionate than that.

        My father experienced what he believed to be the afterlife during a near-death experience in which all his body functions stopped due to inhaling a toxic gas that immediately paralyzes all body functions. My mother knew it was happening at the exact time even though she, my sister and I were halfway around the world visiting her parents. My father experienced it as a euphoric floating sensation and believed that that sensation was heaven. Could simply have been an oxygen deprived brain, but who knows.
