65 Red Roses

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

~ Haruki Murakami

And this gorgeous lady proved that.  Visit her website, 65 Red Roses, to learn more about her incredibly hard and inspiring journey.  I had this quote saved for quite a while...and thought it was only fitting to post it now, with Eva.

Eva's words from March 11th, 2010 at 12:59 AM



i need to dwell there awhile tonight

i need hope

it is the only thing i live on and i am dancing in it tonight

i am rejoicing in hope

running skipping hopping tralala trippingly toppling in hope tonight

every day is one day closer


to breathing

to living

to starting my life anew

to waking up

breathing in ease

i am happy tonight

knowing i am hopeful




i have spoken my word earlier

poetry played pattering across my keyboard

but now

too much energy

simpler words

so much meaning

full of love and hope and the colour red

your girl,



Eva is at peace now and I imagine doing something like this in Heaven.  In red, no doubt.

Free.  Breathing.  Transitioning.

Tune in to live stream her memorial service tomorrow via the 65 Red Roses website.  R.I.P. Eva baby.
