    I Remain Still In That Moment While Time Passed Me By

    It's interesting how the mind works. Although I realize that years have passed, my memories remain still in that moment when I left. When I think of family, friends, or familiar places; I see them still as they were years ago. As silly as it sounds, it didn't occur to me that my...

    The Demise of the Pinafore.

    Pinafores were such versatile useful garments for women and girls. But now they have all but passed into history.I guess part of the demise of pinafores is that women and girls don't wear dresses nearly as much as when I was growing up. And you'd look ridiculous wearing a...

    Missing Everyone

    My family used to be really happy and do everything together. until last year when we were on the vacation we take every year on the lake. The argument started over how much to tip the pizza guy but it somehow quickly got ugly. I wasn't sitting there when it did so it is still...

    I wish I could unlearn what I know

    and start over. Before I knew anything, everyone was safe and everything was safe from being destroyed by the darkness. I know ignorance isn't bliss, but I can get by fine by not knowing what I know. No one wants to know what it's like to lose someone, but they have to face...

    Remember When?

    Remember when we used to talk as often as possible? Remember when, even though we didn't have any classes together, we still saw each other constantly? Remember when I was the biggest part of your life, and you made sure I knew that? Yeah, I know, hard to remember, isn't it...

    And the realization that things will never go

    back to being that way, is unfortunate. All that remains are the memories.

    I Wanna Go Back

    Sometimes I wish I could just be a little kid again. So when life gets tough you can just play pretend. I wanna go back to when Santa did exist. When your daddy was the only boy you ever kissed. When Disney World was the best place to be. When the only movies you could see...

    You would always use some kind words.

    Little names - cute jokes. You used to be so blunt about how you felt about me and how you wanted me next to you just to hug you after a long day and share some kisses. You used to be so curious about my day, about how i felt about you and what were my future plans. Sharing...
