Home, Where My Love Lies Waiting Silently For Me

My apologies for having disappeared for a whole week from my blog… We had planned a fun visit home to Redding last Friday which, at the last minute, turned into a sad week at home instead. The day before we left, Chris’s dad, Larry, died of a heart attack. He was way too young and it came as a huge shock, but there is a lot of love back home and we felt it all week long. For my final project in my photo class I’ll be documenting this experience, as a way to keep myself busy without ignoring my emotions during this tough time.


I feel so much heart ache for the loss of my friend, my friend for so many decades.. So much to recall, and relive in memory. Classrooms, football practices, long talks. flunking out of college our first year, long talks, Larry in Vietnam, long letters, new beginings, dear Sue, new life and redding, many visits and, of course, long talks. It was of course not yesterday, or the one before, but he and i were just kids together in our time in life as teenagers, etc. Larry grew in many ways, I know , but thankfully he remained the same : kind , giving , and very very funny. I wish for one more hug, and one more joke. I’m not saying goodbye my friend! And hey, what where you thinking when you decided to steal home head first with not shirt on in a friggen pick up game? You”re always about something. Keep in touch if you can, you know I will.

I meant to comment a few days ago. I’m sorry Kim, hope things are turning around.
