Letters to Tuvia#25: September 20,2015

Dear T.,

Sorry, I couldn’t write T, I was too busy filling up on memories of our first dress party, when I turned 50 and hosted 125 great friends and family.  Just recently I remembered that I had a videographer create a document  for the event and that I hadn’t watched it in years.

After dinner we gathered  to watch it with our Canadian visitors as  Marla tried  to move it to a dvd for I could  edit it down to its essence.  Here’s a few stills that I want to hold on to. Remember?    Great bites of  Norman, Aaron, Florence, Mel, Marla’s parents, my mom, Eileen, all gone now.  Maybe you’ve run into a few?

It was hard to watch us dancing, marking our first three years together, my  arm candy and I wore you well.   My aunt Sally teared up as she sat watching.

Not much sleep ahead as I swallowed some unsettling realities:

 I watched a radiant me, bathed in your love.

We are my past,


Bonnie S.

  1. What a beautiful time you shared on that day, Bonnie. It’s good that you got to watch those old times with friends and family, to remember together. You and Tuvia are lucky to have found each other.
