Winter Solstice


Encapsulating me, the gray skies, casting shadows

On the new born snow.

Shrouding my body in pearly moist fog,

Protecting me from harshness,…

There are so many memories

Yet to create

As I reflect on the tapestry of my life

I know that each thread is pure color

Pure light

Connected to create a flawless fabric

The fabric of my life

Entwined with miraculous events

Magnificent happenings

Love seeps into my heart

It is woven into the texture of my life

Shelter the cold with warmth

Foster feelings of tenderness

And compassion

Sing songs of joy to the joyless

Save A Place For Me

When you risk the climb

To the majestic mountain top

And sit gazing at the snow covered peaks

Embracing the stillness around you

Surrounding your soul with beauty

Breathing in the freshness of pine scented air

When you do this


Save a place for me

A place beside you

A place inside your heart

When you quest

For the bright orange moon

Slowing creeping up beyond naked trees

Light… Continue

Happy Easter/Spring/Ostara, thally, my friend!

Although our lives have been disrupted, I find it comforting that the business of life goes on undisturbed. I hope you and the family are doing well, and I also hope you can get outside for a good dose of fresh air and the beauty of nature.

And, maybe later cop a nibble of chocolate bunny ears. LOL

Happy New Year, Thally!

Seeing your words on my page made me happy. Your words always do!

I'm so glad to hear that Aaron continues to heal, and that the rest of your beautiful family is doing well, with many accomplishments of which to be proud. Cool that you're still working--keeping fully active is definitely one of the secrets to staying young. 

Life here is much the same. I'm still kickin'. :>)

I'm sending my love to you and your family, dearest friend, and copious good vibes for a fabulous 2017!

Warm, heartfelt wishes for the very best for you and your beautiful family this year, and always.

HOOOOOOOOOOOORAAAAAYYYY!!!  Working hips!!! That is a good gift!!

And the weeks of enforced rest sound like a good thing too, if they allow you to write and not feel guilty about taking the time. :>)  I just reread "Save A Place For Me," and, once again, it brought tears to my eyes. Anyone who can capture the heart's yearning in words needs to write. That means you, thally.

I had always felt empathy for the lonely, the lost, and anyone struggling to walk through empty or dark places with grace. It wasn't until my son died, however, that I truly learned what it is like to be there. And, as we've said before, aging ain't no picnic. Your words are an oasis.

Have you gathered your poems together and published them, thally? What a blessing that would be for your children as years go on? If you haven't, I've used www.blurb.com to compile some of my fractured haiku for loved ones, and it's been a good experience with a great result. The software is free and relatively easy to use. And you can create as many or as few copies as you wish--there's no particular volume requirement. You might want to give it a try.

I'm so glad your Christmas was good and that everyone is doing well. I look forward to up-to-date pictures and news on Aaron's progress and all the rest when you have time after New Year's Day.

Lots of love to you and yours, precious one.

I'm so glad to hear that Aaron is holding up with good humor and high hopes, despite the pain and the long road ahead. I'm sorry he slept through your birthday visit, but I know he felt you there as he slumbered. Poor guy! It's really exhausting being ill and in pain.

I'm also relieved that you're so pleased with the nursing facility he's in--that personal care and concern will help his healing and get him ready for rehab. I'm praying for him every day.

I didn't know you were involved in AA. I've only attended 1 meeting, but have a long history with Alanon, and hold both organizations in high regard. Was the convention fun?

In contrast, a hip replacement does NOT sound fun--LOL--although you'll probably love the results. I agree wholeheartedly about the "golden years" being one big bunch of BS!!!!! I can't be quite as kind about it as you... :>)

I'll trade all the golden years for another crack at 22!

Hope you have something fun and frivolous planned for Independence Day. Whatever it is--stick a few sparklers in it.

I'm so glad to hear Aaron's spirits are high in the face of the challenges ahead. Of course, as your son, I would expect that. I know you have all rallied around him and are there whenever he needs a hug or a laugh. That is so important.

Be sure to take care of yourself through this, thally. It's so easy to totally forget one's own needs.

My love and best wishes continue to flow your way. You're gonna need a storage room for them pretty soon!  :>)
