As the world turns


Today is my grandfather’s birthday. He was born in 1896. He bowed out in 1990, a little shy of ninety-four. This morning I woke up with a dream. My father and my brother were putting strange new metallic siding on an old house. Now I don’t see them anywhere around. I guess I’ll have to finish the job myself.

The world keeps spinning even though it is sometimes hard to hang on when we want to just let go.
This was beautiful, William.

Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, with whipped cream between the layers. That’s what my mother used to make for him every year. You might say he had a sweet tooth ~

Sounds like my kind'a cake ~

It’s great. And after the third day, the paralysis begins to fade.
