6-24-15


... an internet friend of mine passed away the other day.
We had met each other online several years ago by way of prose, poetry, books and coffee... and I discovered that she was fond of a lot of the same things I am. She admired my photos and my poetry...  and I hers... and we would talk on occasion about life.... and books... families and such. It was a casual relationship... yet one built on mutual respect. And suddenly... she was gone.
Life is short.
Life is fragile.
And things pass in the flurry of day-to-day errands... bills to pay... work to be done... and we forget.

We forget to take our time.
Look at the stars.
Value our relationships.
Admire the peonies...

---see you all tomorrow.
