Today I share the loss of one dynamic little boy who we first met when Jodi Rosen captured charming images of him with his family. We heard of his passing from a caring uncle who emailed yesterday to say they had misplaced their disc and wanted to know if we could provide a replacement. Sarah was able to make a copy from the discs we store in safe boxes for them that same afternoon.

Michael was the most vivacious camper we worked with at Camp Agape, his exuberence and vivacity showed in each and every activity. All of the campers at this amazing camp captured our hearts, but it was hard to miss much of what Michael was up to as he did everything with gusto. There could be no greater example of how to live life in the moment than watching Michael revel in his camp experience. His obituary is in the Seattle Times today and I send much love to his family. My extreme gratitude to Nanette Hayre for making it possible for us to visit Camp Agape.

Tonight is the work party at Seattle Prep and I am so thankful to our intern Brenna and her mom Pat for the incredible effort that have made to make this possible. I am deeply moved when many talented hands come together to support our Soul families.

I share a recent photo today of our dear friend and Soul child, Courtney. I recently worked with her family for their annual photo shoot through my business and her mom graciously agreed to let me share this new photo. I so enjoy Courtney and her sisters and it was just great to see her enjoying the lovely fall weather.

I close as always in love and peace and thinking of tomorrow when I will travel to my cabin on the Day of the Dead. As I drive toward the solitude of the cabin I know that the Soul children and adults that I have had the privilege of meeting will be with me and I will celebrate their lives with some simple little temporary altars that I like to make on the beach.
