Life Or Something Like It…

It is near impossible to put into words the scale of devastation, the depth of heartbreak we’ve witnessed this past weekend. As coastal landscapes have terrifyingly vaporised into wasteland, the reverberations are roaring still. Perhaps poetically, it is all only matched by the magnitude of grace and bravery with which the people of Japan have borne their unspeakable tragedy.

Cause Momma Nature destroys as she creates and ‘life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one’ (Kahlil Gibran)

Ok. Didn’t really know where I was going with that but just had to say it.

I finally got round to clearing and organising this past week. It’s a perpetual work in progress as is my life in general 😉 but that crystal chandelier I lugged all the way back from San Telmo now hangs and illuminates. Joy…

Muddled memories of mingling lives sit happily boxed on shelves…

And I was reminded how beautiful the contents are…

Sprog. 6 months.

How little he once was…

Sprog. 15 months.

How precious his words were…

How spelling was never his forte. That would be gruesome by the way.

And the above was drawn at age 2 and some months. A family of sharks. Poppa Momma and Baby with their teeth outside their mouths. And his signature along the right. In purple like the baby shark 🙂

Cause sometimes there is a need to take some time out. Look back and refocus.

    I think I just died due the cuteness overload brought about by that precious pictures and words.

    love that you put up the chandelier in your bedroom (or at least a bedroom!)…..and that you saved and lugged back precious works of art from yesteryear *I did too* 🙂 ….and who cares about spelling when the penmanship is just perfect 😉

    • It is my bedroom GG. Yes I love beautiful old craftmanship – the stories they keep 🙂

      Sprog’s spelling has improved only slightly since then but he does tell some good stories… 😉
