 Wee Alec

I was asked recently what I remembered most about my school days and I trotted out the usual silly stories, the fun times etc. that we all do. It wasn’t till later that evening, sitting with my dog, a book and glass of fine malt scotch that I thought seriously about what I remember most […]

 ~What is Your Christmas Memory?

What is your Christmas memory? ……. During this very special holiday season, with the sights and sounds and smells of Christmas in the air, I paused to reflect on Christmas’ past. There are a few when I was very young, that stand out in my memory and I’ll treasure those forever. I thought this would […]

 Contemplations

Many times, in dreams, I go back to a time long ago. Memories of childhood. Running through the decrepit estate with the other kids. Walking the sewer pipe where it ran 20 feet off the ground. And the woods (we called it a forest, but we were only 7 then) and getting lost in the […]

Recalling our first kiss may have posed to much for some Chatter’s memories…when I responded to Diana’s blog, it made me think of my most memorable kiss. So how about it Chatters?

 MEMORIES

Memories,playing at the corner of my mind , sitting there holding my life in your hand. Pulling me back to where I belong, all of the day wondering where I am at. Thinking and thinking why they come as they do, making me sad as I feel so alone. Waking and wanting and grasping for […]
