I lost a friend of 30 years today.

My life has changed forever.

Memories are fine.

I’d rather create them than recall them.

And my ongoing decent into old age makes that tougher & tougher to do.

What if I forget her?

Will I even know?

The darkness in life is always profound.


Bye girl….

I hope heaven is real.

You need the rest.

  1. Deepest condolences. It is hard losing a friend. I have lost six of them,after up to 65 years of friendship. At my advanced age now, my friends are twenty to thirty years younger than I am, so I trust they will all outlive me.Those who have passed are parts of my life and I can recall times with them with pleasure and laughter. Be grateful you have those kinds of memories. Blessings to you.

    1. Thank you. I was being selfish, I guess. I’m glad to hear from you. You are one of my persons. Sometimes I forget that all of this is real….

  2. It has been said, paradoxically, that the only permanent thing we know is change. I have found, sometimes to my consternation, that it is true. These days I am going through the change of losing my eyesight. I’m grateful that you write in large, legible print, easy for me to see. Thank you! The whole world is undergoing a change these days. Are you doing all right? Are you still working? Staying well?
