Myself and my son (TJ)

66 years gone,

thank you friends and family

for the adventures!!


February 18

I have made new friends.
They are small and very shy.
We shared the sunshine.

January 11

Why do we worry?
A loved one very far away
Hiking in summer.

My son is in New Zealand walking the Te Araroa Trail through South Island.  I think the internet makes it harder. I watch the New Zealand weather reports and the Te Araroa facebook page.  And I worry. I think that comes with being a mother.

The new year has come,
the old put to bed with nightmares,
May we find kindness.
