JewBu Quest: From Abuse to Happiness

JewBu: a Jew who practices forms of Buddhist meditation & spirituality. This blog documents my quest to 1) heal from sexual, verbal, and emotional abuse, 2) come to terms with losing Mom and Grandma to Alzheimers, 3) find balance, explore the spiritual, stay present. Bascially, I've experienced some pretty crappy shit in my life and want to find a way to move past it and find happiness.

Got Bubbe's Pot

Well, after organzing brunch with Mom, her sister, and her cousin - which Mom just loved - my aunt invited me to go to Grandma's this afternoon and take a couple of things. (My grandmother is in a nursing home.) It was weird to be rifling through her stuff, but I'm glad that I got the pictures, one of my great-Grandmother's pots, and this beautiful painting made by my grandmother's brother's 3rd wife's aunt (did you catch all that?) who supposedly is a well-known Polish painter. I got lucky that my cousin was at my grandma's, so I didn't have to go through it on my own. The whole thing was pretty strange, but I'm glad that we got to do it together. And, my aunt said that the important stuff she'll store in the basement, so at least now I know that not all of their stuff is being given to charity. And, she's keeping some. And my sister is taking this enormous painting and my cousin this enormous statue - so there will be a little bit of my grandparents with everyone.
