Hello!

May musings…

I’m going through one of those “everything happens at once” time periods that include life, death, beauty and pain.. 

I’m not sure why this happens all in a singular space in time – a month, a week or a day.. but is it something akin to synergy maybe that when one event transfigures your life, another one follows? 

All I know is, I’m more thankful for every breath I take, I’m more grateful to every person I love & am more aware of my great God who loves me and sustains me.. 

Silent devastation

Eyes that hold a lifetime of moments 
words cannot contain their weight

She walks alone now where once she walked arm in arm, a lightness in her gait 

Memories unsaid yet told & retold in the recess of her mind

Years of love and tenderness now history

Will the days ahead be kind?

54 years of marriage held so many memories & joy that one can take.

Years where she smiled, laughed & cried with him

.. now filled with an empty ache

Wrote this for my grand aunt, the first time I saw her after her husband passed away… 

Family..

They say that there’s a thin line between love & hate; I think anyone close to your heart has the easiest access to cause the worst damage & love can easily turn to hate due to the strength of your feelings. Choice is removed from the equation yet God finds a way to position you in this complex tangled web of love & awkward conversation. 

A space where your heart is exposed & vulnerable. A place where one’s worst is accepted, tolerated or forgiven. 

Some pages of our story look like Tolstoy’s “War & peace” but underlying all that chaos is an undeniable bond shared between us that transcends time or distance…
