This song has often brought me to tears.  The gentle imagery combined with such an important life lesson all in one.  True, I am NEVER thinking of any particular happy memory including my father when I hear this song.  As it works for me now, I just really hope that my kids could look to […]

Although I remained healthy, it was quite a sad scene here at home. I enjoyed the turkey feast leftovers I prepared on Christmas Eve, but it was mainly […]

Seduce me

I remember this one time when I was twelve years old-ish. My dad called me up into his room and was laying on his bed on his back. I enter the room and he asks me to close the door. I was on the edge of the bed but unsure of what was expected. This […]
