  1. Hi Sophia I missed this comment but I see you wrote only a few days ago, so I’m not too late. Things are going surprisingly well, and I am off to France at the end of September. Life as I now know really is short, and needs to be enjoyed! Hope you are well. If you are up to visiting Vermont you would be welcome here. My car is out of service for the time being, hopefully I’ll be back on the road again eventually.
    Best wishes,

    Phoebe

  6. Hi phoebe I am so sorry to hear about your sister. Not sure you remember me I was a companion for your mom for a couple of years I brought her up to see you in weathersfield. You made me a little pill box painted on it was watermelon. I still carry it around ! I always loved your art and your talent
    Please be well and give my best to your family during this difficult time.

  7. ” Joy shared is joy multiplied. Grief shared is grief diminished.” That is an indigenous saying that has been attributed to an African tribe and to a South American one. I believe it reflects Humanity at its best. I am holding Witness. I am sending love and light, as I read the outpouring of support for you in this time of grief, Phoebe. Keep breathing. Find your Center. Stay in your courageous and open heart.

  10. I am crying again. I never went to bed all night, just sat on the sofa, because I felt so sad for you. Phoebe, you are an incredible, amazing woman. You inspire me so much! All that you have been through, and yet you still keep going, you create amazing art and poetry. Oh… I hope you don’t mind a virtual ((HUG))

  11. Phoebe, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to call you Pam in my earlier comment. I read this and I commented three hours ago, and I can’t stop thinking about this. I want to cry. I did not know your sister, my sorrow and tears are for you. Oh I am so sorry. Tears.. I am crying for you.

  12. Pam and family,
    i am devastated to hear of our beloved Carolyn. She is the best. My heart is broken for all of you, and selfishly me. I considered her family and my bf. I have known her for 31 years as both a patient and colleague – she is my mentor. All love to you and the family, Ellen Miller-Pond
