This video is one of a series developed from a workshop Shaun Brink and Ray
Giles conducted through Southrn Oregon University's adult learning program.
In this video Shaun discusses ways to manage our reactions to anniversary days ... the day a loved one died, the day we lost a job, the birthday of a friend who has died and so forth.
We were traveling across country, enjoying the rugged Montana mountains and the feel of the motorcycle on the swooping curves.
Both of us had faced many changes in the years before. We were learning to be a couple, learning to be older, learning to live in the new day.
We did not know what was still to come. . . another death, retirement, marriages and births. It seemed enough had already happened.
We stopped at a rustic bar and restaurant miles into the forest. As we opened the door we heard the sounds of a song that would stay with us ... an anthem we would adopt, learn to sing and play, It was a perfect song for us . . .
A Brand New Day would come.
A POEM OF ACCEPTANCE AND REMEMBERENCE
A video thank you, honoring our connection to each other
