|We leave behind a bit of ourselves wherever we have been~|
Today has been a day of purging, cleaning and dismantling Christmas. I attain such pleasure from the holiday decorations but am keen on the seasonal trinkets being placed back in their perspective boxes just as well. I feel a sense of peace and calm when the house is uncluttered; interestingly enough much like my personality!
So it is on this date that I came upon some aged books I’d stashed away for safe keeping; one being a photograph album displaying nature scenes such as rainbows, sun rises and sun sets and snow. Under each picture was a typed verse or caption that my dearest and best friend Linda and I had either written ourselves or found to accompany each one. The volume was quite gripping given that I’d forgotten I even had it but more so since she AND our memories have been so prevalent in my mind as of late.
In junior and senior high school we played sports together, were co-editors of the yearbook, spent time at each other’s family and shared a strong emotional connection. Life happens as it does and we haven’t spoken in a massive number of years. However, finding this album brought her to mind and heart as well as instigated the wonderment of blogging in its infancy. Isn’t it reminiscent of what we do today? Darn, and to imagine that possibly we could been pioneers in this field!
|The sweetest sound is the silence of peace...|
