Sunny One

The gaudy leonine sunflower
Hangs black and barren on its stalk
And down the windy garden walk
The dead leaves scatter – hour by hour

~ Oscar Wilde

True friends are
like bright sunflowers
that never fade
away, even over
distance and time.

~ Marie Williams Johnstone


The Sunflower
, by Simon Wiesenthal is a very compelling book, and one that brings on an intense reflection and questioning regarding forgiveness.

Thank you for the rose beauty and sunflower joy you bring into my life. I look forward to seeing you spread your wings in the upcoming years. May all your flights and journeys be positive ones.

The 23rd of May is a bit of a unusual day for me, almost like an oxymoron.

I miss you Dad. Your memories comfort me, and I feel blessed to have had your love during the first sixteen years of my life.

Tuesday Writings

I have not been blogging, lately. My mind was not on my blog, but rather, on Boston. I had nothing motivating to say, and needed to stay offline, re my blog.

I am not sure I am ready, yet, to blog, but I will post a short something. Nature was not part of my activities the past few days, I wasn’t motivated to walk around the lake, and my thoughts were elsewhere, and so were my eyes and ears…glued to the news for any bit of new information re Boston.

It was difficult to even read due to lack of concentration. I finally began a book, The Innocents, by Francesca Segal.

I have two library books that I managed to get the drive to check out, earlier:

We Are Here: Memories of the Lithuanian Holocaust

Nine Suitcases

I have The Black Madonna of Derby on my Kindle.

I also have The Essays of George Eliot, on my Kindle.
