Empty Spaces

(originally posted on My Really Real Reality) I have two brass lantern-style candle lamps on my mantel.  They were once a treasured bargain find from 'Tuesday Morning'.  Now, I just find them tired looking.  Something which I don't even think much about unless it's that they need dusted or polished.  I don't care much for dusting or polishing; and it's because of this that I have decided it's time to find them a new ho...more

In Praise of Quiet Weekends

I love a quiet weekend.  While Hubby had to work Saturday, I caught up on chores and TV shows I had missed.  Saturday night, we spent a quiet evening watching TV and reading.Sunday, after a few errands were completed...we settled in for the day.  Steaks on the grill for dinner, Hubby watching TV and me enthralled by the latest from one of my favorite authors.  Not a lot of conversation, but that comfortable silence between two people that actually takes years to achieve....more

Reading Stephen Cope: Braving Stillness

This post was meant to be for Monday, but alas... I started writing this on Sunday afternoon, and then around four, I realized that I felt horrible. Just horrible. A depressing sadness had descended upon me and I could not figure out why or from where. Marcy and I learned two hours later that our dear friend, Ken, had passed away at 4:15. (Make the connections there that you wish.) As soon as I knew this, the depression lifted. I felt such relief that he was no longer suffering. ...more

Sitting In Silence

I’m in America for a few days spending some time with my daughter before she returns to school for her last semester of college. While we were in the car yesterday, we were talking  and playing tug of war with the radio dial while I was driving. I was trying to focus on what she was saying as well as navigating the car and we went back and forth with the volume control until finally she said, “ I don’t like to sit in silence.”   ...more
