Memorial speech by Chris Samuel, Polly’s husband

Mon, 15 May 2017 08:14:25 +0000

This is the tribute that I, Chris Samuel, read at my wife Polly’s memorial recently. Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light. So ends the poem by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas.  That was not Polly’s style.  She most definitely did want to go gently, and on […]

Hello world, Chris Samuel here, Polly’s husband. It’s my sad duty to tell you that my beautiful wife, Polly Samuel, died on the night of Saturday 22nd April 2017.

Eulogy by my cousin Sandi

Sat, 11 Feb 2017 11:28:33 +0000

My cousin Sandi was a Sista to me from age 9-13, a fellow survivor of child abuse a fun, wild, Dag who accepted a very whacky cousin in the magic of her own world who shared it with her in ways I shared it with few and a survivor of breast cancer who as children […]

Why admiration is not true connection – Polly Samuel (aka ‘Donna Williams’)

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 07:52:15 +0000

I only ever wanted equality… so look across at me, now and later, never up at me… find the sistership in me and you will see why admiration was blocking it. Polly Samuel (aka ‘Donna Williams’) Author, artist, consultant and presenter. http://www.donnawilliams.net I acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Owners of […]

To love is to EMPOWER – by Polly Samuel (aka ‘Donna Williams’)

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 07:45:15 +0000

To love is TO EMPOWER and perhaps this is never so pertinent as when talking about someone who is in their last months in the body. It is great to offer ‘helping’ someone to HELP THEMSELVES, for this is EMPOWERING, but to parentify (to want to play parent and glory in the babying of another […]

Visiting me after I’m gone by Polly Samuel (aka ‘Donna Williams’)

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 23:57:59 +0000

When I leave the body I will continue to live on in all who have known me. This is why they say ‘survived by…’ . I will live on in their hearts and minds, whether they are conscious of me or not, in their body-mapped experience of me, in the imprinting that became an integrated […]

When grieving the loss of someone who is more than ‘just a partner’

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 11:59:04 +0000

Chris and I have been more than husband and wife, more than lovers, more than family to each other…. we have been incredible best pals. We have spent 17 years in each other’s company and we are still so interested in each other’s lives, thoughts, feelings, learnings, experiences, silliness and bad jokes. People imagine when […]

TRICKS OF LIGHT by Donna Williams

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 07:20:30 +0000

A trick of the light is an optical illusion. We see something that isn’t there, or we see something we think is one thing, then look at it from a different angle and find our perspective is changed, different. My life has been full of such illusions. Often the illusions had me convinced and I […]

THE JOURNEY by Donna Williams

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 07:06:58 +0000

To my husband Chris who journeyed with me 17 years teaching and gifting me so many things & to my friends Scott & Morghana who understood what journey meant and gave me the joy of watching theirs in action.… We are all born, physically, but there comes a time, ready or not, when we find […]
