April 18

Hope springs eternal.

Spring is not eternal hope.

Snow covered crocus.


April 9

Swords flashed in the sun,

Years of training on display ,


Today two of my friends became First degree black belts (Sho Dan) in Aiki Kenjitsu.

April 3

94 years
94,000 tears
54 years gone
54 candles lost

My dad would have been 94 years old today.  He is still in my heart and in my dreams.  He is loved where ever he may be.
