Picnic











******

Please excuse the silence around these parts. It's been a rough week. One of the roughest. Nothing to do with moving or packing (in fact, all newsprint and cardboard has been put on the back burner), but with other issues that have gripped my heart in an iron fist. And today has left me with an odd sense of renewed hope (my hearts, you have been my comfort) coupled with a trembling fear that still threatens to crush me.

I'm clinging to my life raft.

Thai sings to you:
"I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride"

Thinking of you, whatever it may be. Hold tight, lady. You have an army of allies.

That looks delicious.
Come here and make it for T and I.


Seriously.
Can you come here soon?

Oh, my sweet,
My arms ache to hold you close. But since you are so far away, give me your fears. I will keep them for you while you carry on with life.

Later, when this time is past, you will see they were simply vapor and dust.

Then we will sit together and watch them all drift away in the wind.

I Love You

I'm very sorry to hear of you being tossed and turned in what is oft times a topsy turvy life. But this too shall pass and you will see the dawn of a brighter day onve again. Hugs xx

No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope and fear;
But grateful take the good I find,
The best of now and here.
