For my Daisy companions (with help from kd lang)

I’ve spent the last few days travelling. From my desk. Seeing a book, Waiting for Daisy, from multiple viewpoints. It’s been entertaining and emotional to experience same object by myriad subjects.

Many on the tour are in the throes of infertility. Some will conceive and bear a child. Some will not. Some will adopt a child. Some will not. Some will reconcile themselves to a childfree life. Some will not. Many will rejoice and many will sob, and most will probably do both.

Fellow travellers’ tales took me back to our Dark Time (ttc). I could bring up all the ache and the angst, but nowadays they do not have any power over me. While gardening this afternoon, I heard a song that made me feel the emotions of those days deep in my being.

Like a corny Casey Kasem dedication, I am sending this one out to others in the BBBB.

Constant Craving (kd lang/ben mink)
Even through the darkest phase
Be it thick or thin
Always someone marches brave
Here beneath my skin

Constant craving
Has always been

Maybe a great magnet pulls
All souls towards truth
Or maybe it is life itself
That feeds wisdom
To its youth

Constant craving

Has always been

Craving

Ah ha
Constant craving
Has always been

Constant craving
Has always been
Constant craving
Has always been

Craving

Ah ha

Constant craving

Has always been
Has always been
Has always been
Has always been
Has always been
Has always been
