So many memories
Worth the keep,
Tho there be many
Begs a clean sweep,
For those held evoke
Leads one to wallow,
In recollects thin
Or colours memory
Of near wilting age,
Yet wants a fellow
Bides to engage,
In worthy recalls
Before time shades,
What gave life a stage!
ode to year 2013
“What gave life ones stage!” This is especially meaningful for me tonight. Over the past couple of days, we have been transferring old VHS family videos to DVDs. I have been watching videos of my dad discussing the “old days.” It was like he was with me again. Memories give structure to our lives.
Thank you so much for this post. Happy New Year! Looking forward to our ongoing dialogue.
I thank you Rebecca, for the honour of finding a place for my humble words, to participate in support of your journey thru so personal family memories. That it should come so close is indeed most touching.
I too look forward to our ongoing dialogue, which gives me much pleasure. I am also thankful for the kind encouragement you have shown, that means so much to we who are made to write in the language of, dare I say poetry, or a semblance of same.
Happy New Year to you too dear friend! Jean-Jacques

Thank you my dear friend, for your kind words on mine of the exit for 2013, as well as your good wishes for 2014!
Happy days ahead for all we positive thinkers, and those who are on their way to become so. We who will send our positive thoughts to our negative brothers and sisters.
