And all that’s best of dark and bright.
My dear Tim, I was asked who you were to me this week. For the first time in 18 years, I managed to explain your accidental death and our relationship in only a few lines. I spoke with clarity, tenderness, and honesty. Thank you for always seeing me… in an ocean of people. You said it was… Continue reading
Embrace the journey.
I hear him open the front door and admit feeling a small excitement. It is 21h33. He has worked another 12 hour day. It feels like the long walk to freedom as he climbs the stairs to our bedroom. He walks in with a smile and we talk about our day. We both worked from… Continue reading
Dear friends and other interesting creatures, You were my first love as a little girl. Waiting for you to come home from the Airforce. A R5 tucked into my hand when nobody looked. The first man to buy me perfume. A comfort after my father died. Continue reading

What a wicked game… (We met at work and were seated opposite each other.… Continue reading

My hand on my husband’s chest I do believe that without human touch, even a hug, we die a little… Touch can be just as good for the soul as bread is for hunger. His body is my wonderland. 🙂 Grey chest hair is so sexy and bear hugs in big arms … safety to… Continue reading
We love because it’s the only true adventure.
Break ups are hard. Torture. Soul destroying. Seldom does anyone ask, “So why you together?” but plenty are lightning fast to ask “So what happened? Why did you break up?” I never liked him anyway…. You can do better than her … Never thought you should have taken on the responsibility of her kids anyway…… Continue reading
