behind every story

made up by my

God-Created-Event

waiting to

unfold…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An Observation…

It’s both curious and unfortunate that it takes such grand scale disasters and heartrending tragedies  for us humans to reveal our HUMANITY.

beautiful

 

the kind of day

my

beloved grandson

preferred…

 

reflections

of his

state of being

 

what a shame he cannot be

here-now

 with his

Nana…

 

sharing the

glory

of

being

   human

 

feeling melancholy…

 feeling my boy…

   Just took more photos of the river…

   the river and sound have such a hypnotizing pull on me…

season after season

   year after year…

day after day

my son says

but ma…

you keeping on taking the same photo

over and over again…”

   he does not see the subtle changes from photo to photo

from day to day

season to season

the shifting shadows

the shimmering light

seasons marked

by the

absence or presence of sailboats on the sound

 

the stillness or gentle flow of the waters

the tugboat far off in the distance…

the mood of the sky

the shifting shapes of dancing clouds

no…

he does not see the subtle differences

from year to year

for he sees only with eyes

while I see with heart and soul

this river and sound that are kin to me…

this river that has held-rocked-soothed-nourished-and-healed-me

through twenty-four years of

pain

sorrow

loss

agony

and the

deepest-of-soul-stirring

joy...

no…

he does not see this

gift-from-the-“GODS”-view

with

   eyes-of-love

  as I do…

for it is

my

life itself

that is

reflected in the waters below…
