I wrote a while back about a little boy named Pablo who was fighting for his life.

He passed away today, surrounded by his family.

His family shared his smile with us and his short life and all their love for each other. He was a beautiful boy, and I'm saddened by their suffering, wishing them solace as they go forward.

And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.
--Raymond Carver


  1. What a beautiful boy. He is soaring.

  2. What Ms. Moon said ......
    yes a beautiful boy
    and the word "is" is filled with promise

  3. A beautiful boy, beautiful smile. I'm so sorry.

  4. and suddenly all earthly worries become moths.

    Pablo. Lovely Pablo.

  5. beyond heartbreaking.... i can't even begin to imagine.

  6. thanks for posting this. I remember your first post on Pablo...sweet little boy.

  7. At last you have departed and gone to the unseen.
    what marvelous route did you take from this world?

    beating your wings and feathers,
    you broke free from this cage.
    rising up to the sky
    you attained the world of the soul.
    you were a prized falcon trapped by an old woman.
    then you heard the drummer's call
    and flew beyond space and time.


  8. Thank you for sharing this beautiful families story.
    I have no words.

  9. He is a beautiful little boy.

    And that he died is not right. Not right at all.

    Love Renee xoxo
