Currency

The value isn’t in the object. It is in the human story attached to it. The worn chair, the chipped saucer, a silver fork, her oil painting, a skeleton key, a one-eyed bear, a favourite find, a worn photograph. The memory is tactile, visual, and fraught with emotion. Love. This is the currency to value. ~ Ikea.com Tillago 20 piece flatware    

Fathers and Daughters

  I’ll cradle you in my arms like a small child sleeping Holding fast to your lost flesh Your once muscular body, feather- weight, gone Your heart beat, silent As I carry your ashes home Where is home? An island, Vancouver, Toronto, Australia? It is anywhere we were, anywhere we are.   It is time to set you free To know with certainty, you’ll … Read More Fathers and Daughters

Layers

  It snowed this weekend and the world became just a bit more enchanted. Layers of water and ice glistened over the street. Ribbons of snowflakes tumbled and bedecked the boughs beyond my window. Lights twinkled, evermore bright, as darkness dropped a veil atop the blanket of white. A hush settled upon the land. The world was beautiful to behold. I’ve learned to look … Read More Layers

Autumn Light

Kissed by autumn’s softened light I sit at my desk Writing, wondering The moment simple, quiet Surrounded by words and thoughts Tucked away memories A gentle sadness, softened by time Rustles As I cast a spell of silence and peace   The wind whispers your name Rock a bye, rock a bye Siren’s sing you home Rock a bye, rock a bye To a … Read More Autumn Light

Elegance

  The elegant bones were the give away. Once hers held richer presence. Austere yet luxurious, polished and shiny, shades of auburn and chestnut beckoned. She stood behind a door, snugged against a wall, opposite a front window, preferring to stand in the light. The overcast  days cast too many shadows. Yet it was from behind the door that she listened. Beauty fades, even … Read More Elegance

Through her eyes…

The Cradle

Grandpa fashioned the wooden cradle by hand and painted it Barn Red. I remember that afternoon; his hands set the cradle onto the linoleum floor. My small hands reached forth, rocked the cradle. His gentle eyes looked into mine, “For your doll, rock her to sleep,” he said. He turned to my mother, “I found the pattern in the newspaper.” I recall the cradle was … Read More The Cradle

A Tribute to a Lady

  It used to drive me crazy as a teen. “Tell me what you think, Mom. What should I do?” Mom would set aside her paint brush, focus her dark eyes upon mine and shrug. Her comment was always, “It doesn’t matter what I think; it’s what you think that counts. Think for yourself.” Brush strokes filled a canvas. Think for yourself. Three words … Read More A Tribute to a Lady

Retrospection

My lately~ has been retrospective; maybe you can relate. This morning I attacked the basement, cleaning and placing loose photos and memories into their corresponding scrapbooks with hope that one day these bits of memory will be meaningful for family. I came across a memoir of sorts, once tossed into a box, given to me by a much missed “aunt.” In it: a family’s … Read More Retrospection
