It Was Love

Lately I awaken, the dream remnants lingering cast like a veil over form. An unanswered question hovers. Pushed aside, betrayed; shame surfaces. The frightened young woman deep within whispers, I must be flawed, something is wrong with me. The adult reasons, Perhaps not. Perhaps it was as simple as you didn’t fit in anymore.   I am his daughter, patiently holding silences. Chosen memories … Read More It Was Love

A Dream

Her words written on an email~ I had a strange dream last night.  Tell me more, I wrote back.  These are her words. I was sitting on a beach, tracing shapes into sand, watching as the grains shifted, the sand bits refusing to stay put, rearranging themselves, she wrote. A man came into view.  He looked to be in his early seventies and was wearing … Read More A Dream

Layers

531 Layers When I recall my father I remember is eyes, the long almond shaped lids, their colour and clarity.  His eyes were the darkest green, unnatural actually, animal like in their brilliance and sparkle.  His hair was raven black, combed straight back from a high forehead.  These attributes were his best features along with an attractive expression.  He had youthful good looks and … Read More Layers

December’s Words

Your last, whispered words spoken were, “I love you, honey.” It is as if the words floated through the air between us and found their way inside, under my skin, pumped through my blood stream until they found their home.  The four little words tattooed on my heart. Those four little words have a surging, pulsating power of their own.  The power to reassure me … Read More December’s Words

Fall Back

Part 2~ The opportunity to fall back in time, to face him, the questions lined up in rapid fire, the judgements already sealed, words tattooed upon the woman’s heart .  Its every pump, sending forth doubt, frantic searches to find the missing puzzle piece, the never-ending search for an answer to the question, Did you love me?  An answer to the why.  There had … Read More Fall Back

Tea With Alice

Tea with Alice was amusing, if not, slightly charming.  My Grandmother Alice enjoyed a spot of tea, Earl Grey being the tea of choice.  Alice used a cooking pot to boil the water before transferring some of the scalding liquid into a metal teapot to warm it up.  Then, my grandmother would take a minute timer and tip it over, the sand slipping through … Read More Tea With Alice

Life Lessons Inside The Glass House

My father enjoyed gardening, in particular, growing prize chrysanthemums, which he would enter to show.  Every fall, dad would choose the best of the mums, name some after his girls, and take the blooms to the Royal BC Chrysanthemum Club show event.  Dad would ready for the show the night before, carefully choosing the perfect blooms.  Next, dad cut the long stems, gently pulling … Read More Life Lessons Inside The Glass House

It Is Always Winter

When I recall my father, it is always winter.   I’m not sure why that is.  Upon calling forth memory, I visualize his smiling face, then, a postcard-screened scene of the perfect winter appears.  Snow, blanketing the ground.  Frosty shades of blue, the softness of the scene, like peering through mohair.  Sunlight streams through the dancing flakes of snow. Evergreens dusted, branches bending, sunlight streaming … Read More It Is Always Winter

A Peek Into Heaven

For many childhood summers, always during the month of August, our family would pack up the car, tossing in the bright plastic buckets and shovels, oversized towels, a large, loaded cooler, dented and scratched from use.  These items crammed into the trunk of the Wagon.  We would head to the ferry terminal to sail across the Strait of Georgia, to Kaye Bay Lodge, on … Read More A Peek Into Heaven

We Shared a Song

“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are grey. You’ll never know dear how much I love you. Please don’t take my sunshine away. The other night dear, as I lay sleeping, I dreamt I held you in my arms When I awoke dear, I was mistaken, So I hung my head and I cried. You are my … Read More We Shared a Song
