Jill, Santorini, 14th May 2008
From Eric Teperman (Facebook, Sunday, July 6):
I have just gotten news from Lynwood Shiva Sawyer that his lovely wife, and our friend, Jill Maddox [“Mother Manonash”], has passed away from the cancer she has been suffering with, on 6th of July.
My soul, like a homing bird, yearning for Paradise,
Shall arise and soar, from the snares of the world set free.
—Hafiz (trans. Gertrude Bell)
She touched so many people’s lives and in so many ways — every moment brings another surprise and even astonishment.
Thank you all so much for all your wonderful prayers and support, not only now, but in the rocky road that the last two years have been.
When misunderstood, Life is a pest.
When understood, Life is a jest.
To pilgrims on the path, Life is test.
but when relinquished through Love,
Life is at its best.
