The Photo



                                                          I used to feel guilty having the photo
 
                                                          The one you sent your brother from boot camp

                                                 Your note to him on the back


                                                 He handed it to me on your front porch

                                                 The summer before he died

                                                 Insisted I have it

                                                   

                                                 Now you're gone too


                                                          And the photo?

                                                          It's where it's supposed to be

                                                          I think he knew that when he gave it to me

    3. Things are good here. Peaceful. I hope things are good for you, as well, and you're still having adventures. I miss our community of bloggers. Some fine folks there. Hearing from you is a nice reminder of those times. :)

    4. I'm glad for you! I am still getting done at 72. In Colorado now but spend more time in Mexico and have permanent residency. Puerto Vallarta has been more my home than here. Sure as hell isn't nirvana but for me it's better. I miss the blogging too. It's very hard for me as a child of the 60's to see what my country has become in a few short years. New words are needed for what is happening. Enjoy the warm Teresa and how I miss the food!
