Memories

Like leaves on a tree that fall to a ground so do memories come and go. Leaves grow back in the spring but memories sometimes never do. Why is it that only bad memories work on the mind? Is it a remembrance of what not to do? What not to repeat? Does this happen to you? The picture above is a stop on many of our west coast visits. It brings back a plethora of good times. Yet to spring the memory I needed to look at pictures. Does this happen to you or do memories pop into your head?

There are days I wake with the realization that bad things happened in life. The death of a high school friend who did two tours in Vietnam only to get murdered at a liquor store trying to prevent a robbery. Now why would that suddenly pop up to awaken me in a cold sweat ? I was not there when the incident occurred. Waking up in a glass coffin buried six foot under with the coffin filling up with water. Feeling like I was actual suffering these Dilemmas. Do these kind of dreams inhabit your mind?

I remember my Mother very easily. Remembering my Dad at times is difficult. Sometimes I remember the bad things he did but forget the good things. Working hard to be a good provider. Counseling me in getting married to mention a couple.Does this happen to you?

The picture above was the beginning of my hiatus. I was traveling with my girlfriend and two dogs. My wife had passed away a few years earlier and at this stop I thought; Marian you would love to do this. I love you. I walked up to my girlfriend gave her a hug and a kiss. She said, “what’s the occasion?” I said,”  Not being alone and having you by my side.” Funny how memories work.

Pura Vida!

COME TO ME

COME TO ME WHEN I SLEEP
OUR LOVE I PROMISE TO KEEP
WHEN IT IS TIME DON’T BE LATE
I NEED YOU TO WALK ME TO THE GATE
