What Remains (tanka)*

unforgotten love

lingers after it departs

remains in the heart

photographs now left behind

remains of what once was us


*Note: Photographs are the physical remains of our memories of people and places we loved. Where a moment of happiness is preserved forever. My song choice is Photographs and Memories by Jim Croce. One of my favorite artists, died at the age of 30 (at the height of his career) in a plane crash, like many before him and after.

Mistakes happen easily, forgiveness is harder.

The top 3 reasons for divorce,

#1 Money (my mom would say, β€œWhen money problems walk in the front door, love flies out the window.”

#2 Intimacy if your limbo isn’t in sinc eventually you hit

#3 Infidelity The reality is infidelity fundamentally changes your marriage. It erodes trust and leads to a breakdown in communication. Sooner or later, infidelity usually catches up with you which is why it is one of the leading causes of divorce.

A Quiet Man * You are Remembered

I speak to

you sometimes

in those moments





I feel your closeness

within the sound

of the wind through

the trees.


I miss

your gentle quiet ways,

comfortable with silence;

your words of wisdom,

offered tenderly;

your ever present smile,

my own given in return;

your calm ice blue eyes,

that always saw my soul.


I was like an island,

surrounded by an

endless ocean

of love you held

in your heart

for me.


*Note: I was lucky to have this gentle man as my father.

This is a photo of my Dad at the age of 21 shortly after my parents were married. My Dad is looking directly into the lens he always did that. He looked people straight in the eye never looking away. As I got older I noticed it made people uncomfortable, sometimes they’d look away. I remember asking my Dad why that was. His response was two fold, either their lying or hiding something deeper they don’t want you to see.

On a side note: I have a photo of my Mother age 17 in the same setting, apparently taken the same day. however she is actually reading (she loved books) the book.

Wishing my fellow bloggers a Happy Fathers Day to the men who choose to be a Dad, Step Dad, Adopt, or Mentor a child, remember be kind, understanding you are molding who they’ll become.

Always 🌎 ✌🏻 πŸ’™ Take care, be safe.

*Note: It’s known that eyes and facial expression speak louder than any verbal statement. I’m providing a link to word nerd for an explanation of the title, which in itself is interesting.


As always I hope that you enjoy the music I have chosen for your listening pleasure.
