Music for Saturday night

The Weight Band
From their YouTube channel...Stellar...meg



For a place.

For a place with space

For Home

For  that thing unnamed
He would know it when he saw it.

Talking to my Brother

It was during the Vietnam war.
I was ten. My brother went to war.
My heart was heavy every minute he was there.

My wish came true,
My brother called from Vietnam.
Communication not so easy back then. Letters mostly.

It was not as easy as I thought.
I had to say,"over" after each sentence.
Each sentence starting with my mouth open and nothing coming out.
What can I say?
Stage fright.

A memory,
My Mom at my side urging me, "talk, talk."

Zentangle Lesson #4


Lesson #4

For Sharry, wherever you are...
For Debbie, for giving me the book and sharpies :-)

Each lesson builds upon the prior lessons,
The carryover fun to watch in other art I have done too.
Teaching me depth, shading, letting go.
Meditative, relaxing.
Each lesson a day in the book. Sometimes Takes me months.

Second edition...first post had duplicate YouTube links....meg


Yesterday the call came,
I felt a let down,
a relief,
a tear and a smile
what is next?

92 plus,
His age and health
Was on the North side
of good.

It will take awhile for me to fully process,
That he's not there anymore,
At that town where 
I was born,
Held in Dad's arms,
Then passed around the family of those days,
and back to Mom.

Then I left that town,
Thinking I would return,
Seeing my parents less than I would like,
More noticeable as my parents went off, together,
Starting their next adventure,
They are free.

Last night had to tweet:

Mom & Dad Alaskan Cruise

and some music links for Friday
that Dad introduced me to...
