shared memories
a moment in the present
is a bridge to our past
in the struggles of life
like dead leaves dancing
across an empty street
during the quiet times
lost in the time
between day and night
waiting for the dawn
under the brilliant colors
of the sky
glimpse into our
shared memories
is enough for my heart

Steve J. Burkett

I miss you most
when I'm lost
in an ocean
of my own making

I love you - don’t recall how long it’s been since I told you - too long, no matter when. :)
I know it frustrates you when I don’t write - I really try, but then it doesn’t happen...part of my emotional disease, I guess. Never - and I do mean NEVER - think that when I’m silent I’m not thinking of you - not loving you.... that never changes - even with the lives we’ve led, I’ve always loved you in one way or another.
In my melancholy moments I realize that there’s no one still alive who knew me as a little child. Is that good or bad? Closest is you and Cella (my hearts sister) - then Mel. But that was at 16 and 17 - when I believed I was an adult - lol
Time to sleep - doctor appointments tomorrow - nothing’s wrong - just routine, so don’t worry. I love you - forever (56 years and counting)

Hello love - looks like they didn’t get my last post mailed yet (from last week) so now you’ll get 2 :)
I am in pain today - through stupidity, of course. Friday I decided to bathe the dogs - usually do so in the sink, so I can stand - but sometimes in the bathtub so the two larger ones fit easier. I’ve never had problems either way (in retrospect that’s because in the tub I sit on the side with my feet inside and lean over. Well, this time I decided I would kneel/sit on the floor outside the tub - I wear these stocking things to improve circulation and didn’t want to have to remove them because it’s a pain. All went well - they all 4 got washed and rinsed and out of the tub. I braced my hands on the side of the tub to get up - of course it’s all wet and the tub is slick - so my hand slipped and I crashed against the side of the tub - sigh
I’m pretty sure I cracked my rib - not making a special doctor visit because there’s really nothing they can do. It’s not severe enough to worry about - unless it’s not improved - after (ugh) 3 to 6 weeks! I can breathe fine, so no lung punctures - just discomfort when I take deep breaths. Like I said - stupid! Lol
Hope you’re having a good week - at least a better one than I am. I love you ❤️💕 for always
