A Picture of Me and My Father

I haven't blogged in a while.  Let's say writer's block. However, life keeps going and so many things are swimming around in my head.  I watched the video in my last post - from almost 2 years ago - and it made me cry.  It's a vivid example of how life goes on and is constantly changing.  My Father was in the video - healthy and alive.  We had all just walked 60 miles over three days for breast cancer.  It was a great time and a wonderful experience.  I had no idea that would be one of the last major events that I would have with my Father.  Now he is no longer living - 4 months and 19 days ago, he left in a matter of seconds as a result of a heart aneurysm, no longer to inhabit this earth.  I still can't believe it, but yet people experience this every day - It's a part of life.

That doesn't really have anything to do with anything in the world right now, except that it's my world.  I look around at people and wonder what's really going on in the lives of people around me.  Do we really know?  As thoughts continue to pop into my mind, I knew I needed to start writing again.  Yet what to write about and my only venue or reader is me.  And that's ok - then for me it is!  I'll write what I feel and boy do I feel these days.  So, here's to writing again and as a salute and in memory of my Father, I'll start with a picture of he and I from the 2009 Susan G Komen Tampa Bay 3-Day in memory of him.  Here's to you and I Dad - I miss you and Love you!
