You departed unexpectedly
And left me alone.

Alone in limbo
Belonging no where.

I am a refugee
Looking for my missing soul....

He Was My Home

It’s said you can’t go home again

How true that is for me

Cause home wasn’t a place

Home wasn’t a building

Home was You.

I resided in your heart

Your soul my blanket

When I close my eyes

I imagine my head

Still pillowed on your chest

I can still feel you……

In my dreams I can always go home…..

I Miss Us

I miss the us we used to be..

We were good at it..

You and me.

We melded together

Into one.

You and me…

Became an us….

I’ll always think of Us

As We, for Eternity…

Coping with Coming Home to an Empty House

So I went to the Women's March in Walnut Creek, CA. And it was exhilarating. Then to the memorial of a friend's mother. I was so grateful to be doing these things with friends, women in my writers group. Being connected and coping with loneliness have been my biggest challenges. But then it's home to my lovely, but empty, house, leading to my latest blog post here:… Continue

A New Home

After many interesting contortions, I got my house.

It really is just perfect for me. Howard wouldn't have done nearly as well there, but I absolutely love it.  It has just everything I could have asked for.

It has orange, lemon, and a mystery tree that I had initially thought might be some sort of tangerine but ended up being the world's smallest grapefruits. I'll be adding lime, so I'll have the full compliment of citrus that I'll use in cooking. I'm looking forward to just…

Memories of Shane--Our First Date, January 21, 2013

5 months of anticipation builds up to this. The handsome man whose picture looks just a bit like Aragorn from Lord of the Rings, stalking my profile. POF showing me that he’s viewed me 3 times this week, so I check out his profile, and like what I see. I make the first move, and good thing I did, because he’s outside the age parameters I’ve set of who can message me by 2 years. I almost missed out on a good thing.

For months, we learn about each other as we talk on the phone and…

Letters to my Late Husband: You Made Me Believe In Love

When I met you, I didn’t believe in love. I thought love was something that blinds people to reality and gets them in trouble. I was certain I would never find that magical love I had dreamed about when I was youthful and idealistic, because that love didn’t exist. And then I met you.

I didn’t want a relationship. I wanted to be free from attachments and the pain of failed…

Time for some new decisions

What can I say, a month went by and I didn't have anything to write about, or maybe that should be nothing I wished to write about..  I dreaded the thought of Christmas but I did gather with the family at my daughter's house and it all went well.  It was good to see the little cousins interacting, good to have my son-in-law do all the preparations so my Christmas Day was relaxed but there was also a strong feeling that I wanted to be there as part of the old couple, Mum and Dad, Sue and Ray,…

Another season ending.

Watching the Broncos this year has been a bit of an emotional roller coaster for me. The first couple games of the season were just as they should be, even if our play wasn't always stellar. Why? Because Shane was right beside me on the couch, a fan of the team, even if he was always pessimistic about our chances. Fast-forward a couple weeks and we were watching a game together from his hospital room. One week after that, I was hyperventilating as the game was starting, outside trying to…
