    Bitter sweet, but tasty. The photo will haunt me for a very long time, as will the layers of words.

  8. Beautiful, true, and it was also, a joy to read this and reminisce. Something even old boomers like to do.:0)

    Absolutely stunning and haunting in equal measure. I really enjoyed reading this collection of beautiful words. And the picture – the face covered in moss is breathtaking. Did you take the shot? Have a lovely weekend.

    I really love the way you make words sound so musical. And it’s so easy to get the imagery here, especially with the wonderful photo. Loved it!


  19. Your words are lovely and bittersweet, much like the aging process.
    I remember a time, not too long ago, when I went to lunch with a friend, a lady 30 years my junior. For the first time, I became aware that I wasn’t the one men noticed anymore. But that was okay; I’d had my time in the sun. 🙂 To everything there is a season . . .

    Perhaps because I can relate more than I would like, this is an instant favourite. Well done!
