loss

i feel a need to write something down. not really a need, perhaps. but an obligation. though that word fails as well. to call out a memory that i carry with me each day. and a date that marks the time since he left me. 6 yrs. i still feel his hand on my shoulder. and see his twinkle in my girls' eyes.

and miss him.

i was thinking of you too, friend. hoping your heart was not too heavy.

this was a tough one for me. that feeling of more and more time passing between loosing her and now is difficult for me to come to terms with.

i am working on some pieces for a show that are helping to keep me company and process the feelings i am ready to process, which helps.

how does the time pass so quickly, when it feels like it was only yesterday?

boy do you resemble your father, so touching.

you are on my heart,
s

That photo sure is a wonderful capture of your dear dad.
He definitely looks like someone who could pass on some eye twinkles to his grandchildren.

Take care.

Here is a wonderful poem that I send to everyone, because it always gives me comfort when I think about those I miss so much.
