…he was bald by then.  He died wearing his knitted cap.

His hat collection totaled 100.  None had ever been worn. 

At his viewing, he’ll wear a bowler hat with matching black suspenders.

A color scheme will be used to decorate the room with the remaining 99 hats.

Honoring his wishes you are asked to wear a hat to his funeral. 

Suspenders are optional.

The first person to arrive wins the hat collection.

Please wait until service is finished before claiming the bowler hat.

RIP

Life’s Choices

Life,
with its myriad surprises
Of late,
countless blessings
Today,
panic, doubt
burn in my belly.
Facing my challenge
I creep like a mouse
choosing door #4.
Stepping over the threshold
quickly,
the door closes behind me.
The past
is no more.
Today
just is.
Tomorrow’s light
shines forth.

Memories

In my quiet solitude, unable to control my tears, I recall the love we shared hiking to our secret spot. It has become an aching memory etched deeply within my heart. Since you left, I feel like this abandoned little rowboat, half submerged, slowly slipping from the surface.

Sinking Boat

That’s my sister with the tour group. On her return I will be overwhelmed with photo sharing. This one picture tells its own story though. It’s an overcrowded boat with folks preoccupied with their cameras. What happens if the boat sinks, will they take underwater pictures then?
