A Very Special Relationship

An Essay by Annette Dock
As I am floating, completely relaxed, I am surrounded by a bright light and in the distance I notice a familiar scene. There is an instant recognition. My heart overflows with such joy over this rather unexpected reconnection. Fond shared memories start to line up before my inner eye, like pearls on a bead. In the first memory I see myself as a little girl savoring the yellow raspberries that grew close to the shoreline, and there are the white and yellow water lilies that always fascinated me but that I was never able to reach out and pick. Then there is a glimpse of one bright winter’s day when my mother and I went ice skating until it got completely dark and we had to return back home to thaw.
