Wedding Reception- On the Edge of Longing

Wedding Reception- On the Edge of Longing

On the edge of longing… I found myself on the edge again. The edge of the crowd, the edge of the dance floor, the edge of the conversation. I saw people, acquaintances, family and old friends- some of us had been separated by distance, by hurt, morals and ideals.

Alone in the crowd.

Alone in the crowd.

Tonight Leo and I went out for supper and then to see the play “The Adams Family” I went because Leo asked me too, because we both knew people in the play and because Leo and Michael were involved with set building. This is my least favourite play, TV Show and story of all time. I do not think there is one I dislike more… it is popular, famous and overdone in local schools and communities.

What I saw when I woke up…

What I saw when I woke up…

When I woke up this is what I saw, a small brown ‘thing’. Leo got up before me as he always does. He likes to do that so he doesn’t have to make the bed. He announces to everyone and anyone who will listen that the last one out of bed should make it. That means grumpy, not a morning person Alex J. is responsible for making the bed.

As I was driving home tonight- having left earlier than usual, I noticed spring really present in the world. I noticed a farm with donkeys and wondered what you would do with so many… but they were cute and grazing in the field.

Then my eye caught these adorable little purple flowers growing in clusters…

Flying Shoes and Baby Powder

Have you ever wondered how you got to “that” place or stood somewhere and wondered “when did this happen and when the hell did I turn into this person?”  I remember standing in our bedroom on Christmas Eve having an argument with my husband, Leo about who was going to pick up the shoe from the neighbour’s lawn that had been launched through the window moments before the argument. This is when I first realized my life had become a…
