The FLEUR DE LIS drawing was my FIRST work created
without the physical presence of JASPAR OBI
underneath my studio table.
 His HEARTFIRE energy is forever in my heart
and
for ALL who he met and blessed.

All of my work refuses/denies the camera’s eye.
The revelation, the experience,
occurs with an actual encounter – presence.
The beauty of one’s beloved is
the improvisational/sacred listening
of/ for/ to/ with
the beloved.

This is the last day

on Earth

of

my

BELOVED

JASPAR OBI.

X

X

X

X

X

X

X

X

ELEMENT

is the last series of art

that was created

with the

ALL of ALL

of

JASPAR OBI

in my studio

– sleeping below my stainless steel table

and

sending his blessings to me as

I dove for the pearl deep,

listening to the sound of the silver horn,

in the sea of my imagination.

X

X

JASPAR OBI

was present,

glorious/vital/adventurous/joyous/blessed

presence,

for 10.5 years in my life.

X

X

Sacred listening.

X

X

X

 

JASPAR OBI

is landing his

SPITFIRE

at

1715 military time CST.

Please light a candle for my Jaspar Obi.

Thank you.

Peaceful.

Loved.

Supported.

Released.

X

X

All gathered at 4:45 pm.
The wind was fierce and the temperature was frigid.
They  truly had my back
– I felt an unusual comfort in the shelter of their care.

 

X

X

I  had bathed Jaspar
in the bathtub
two hours earlier.
I seared every pass
of my hand on his body
to memory.
He was too weak to shake off the water.
We would have a game:
Shake #1 to #8!!
Jaspar loved being bathed – feeling clean, fresh.

X

Jaspar Obi’s
K9 buddies walked with him
as he was wheeled
in his cart
to
Dr. Pomeroy’s clinic several blocks away:
Juno (Leah),
Jax (Maggie);
Remy ( Erin + Todd);
with
Steph
and
Mike. 

X

X

BEAUTIFUL.

X

X

I burst out crying
when I experienced

the beauty

of the
loving kindness,
compassion
and
courage 
of those who chose to
walk with Jaspar/me
as my
heart
was

shattering.

X

X

Love IS.

PRESENCE.

LOVE is a riverVERB.

 

X

X

X

caressed
Jaspar’s
sweet body,
wrapped my arms around him
– my chest upon him,
kissed him,
and
thanked him
for our adventure
until…

X

X

Dr. Pomeroy was amazed that Jaspar’s  life force
prevailed over the grim prognosis
of his bone cancer in his sinus cavities.
Every week Dr. Pomeroy checked in.

X

X

Jaspar and I

CHOSE to LIVE.

WONDER.

AWE.

Jaspar was/is my soul guide and companion in life.

X

X

X

The walk back without my Jaspar
was walking without my legs.
Jaspar and I had created/ lived a beautiful bountiful life for 10.5 years
– together.

X

X

Suddenly,
as we entered Mears Park.
the cascade of our stories
overwhelmed me.
I was surrounded
in the dedicated love of his BEST K9 friends
and
 dear friends.

X

X

When we were crossing
through Mears Park,
Mike stopped and said:

LISTEN!

We all stopped.
In the park’s pavilion’s stage,
from the large speakers:

Jaspar

has defiantly defied

the bone cancer

for over a calendar year

with

his remarkable, fierce, and sweet

life force…

and, now

the divinity within him

is calling his name.

X

I see.

I have been

listening, listening, listening

to

Jaspar’s

elegant, courageous, tender

body&soul.

I accept, honoring, following his soul’s lead.

The

BLESSING CEREMONY

is dedicated to

the

pure sacred radiant

GRACE LOVE

of our

4legged

guardian angels

our lions at our heart’s gate.

dear friend sent the link 
(embedded below)
on the JASPER stone to me
after
my JASPAR crossed over
on
Veteran’s Day 11 November 2019.

I chose to spell his name JASPAR.

I was astounded that the information of the JASPER stone
mirrored my
JASPAR’s soulpresence.

The

BLESSING CEREMONY

was

poignant

powerful

enchanting!

X

All K9s

were given two presents:

green glow collars

– running / playing / glowing,

  and

special treats

– small milkbones with peanut butter

wrapped in aluminum foil

to look like shining silver bonestars!

ALL 2leggeds

were given two presents:

 steaming hot green tea

and

 green glow ‘tails’ to wear!

X

X

Many many many

K9s arrived!!!

 

X

Once ‘knighted’

with their 

green glow collars,

Jaspar’s amazing K9 friends

spontaneously

created

blessed energy

boundless JOY

and

a beautiful memoir

of the

precious gift

of

our

sentient / “metacognitive”

4legged

guardian angels.

X

WONDER.

AWE.

SACRED.
