"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."
Lucy Maud Montgomery

blackbird singing in the dead of night...


take these broken wings and learn to fly,
all your life
you were only waiting for this moment to arrive.

my dear sweet boy my hopes and dreams for you were smashed the day you were taken from our arms.  Now I hold a different kind of dream for you...a place...where you are running, jumping, laughing, playing, flying kites while the warm breeze flows through your wonderfully blonde-wavy hair.  You are surrounded by love, and grandparents, and cousins from long ago and they tell you stories of the life they lead, they teach you about the skies and the stars and show you which one shines only for you.  They wrap their loving arms around you and soften the pain, dry the tears and love you fully. It may be a place that only exists in my heart but that doesn't matter for that is where you will always reside. (from a broken mother's heart)   (Matthew Scott, November 14,1974 5:10 pm)

blackbird singing in the dead of night
take these sunken eyes and learn to see
all your life
you were only waiting for this moment to be free.
(song lyrics by john lennon)
