#sol19: Past and Past Past

Here’s the past.  It’s hard to ignore it.  Memories on Facebook flood me with these beach memories and honestly, it’s a sweet feeling  reminding me of what it was to be coupled with Tuvia.  Tuvia  allowed me to be a freer me. Before him wasn’t comfortable in the sand and I’m not sure that he was a beach lover either, but together, the sand walks at the edge of the ocean, lovely breakfasts, evening breezes, the colors of Mexico when we escaped the boredom of winter’s white cold in March…

Of course I could be content to stay longer…

I’d like to find a way back to the sand, but it will be different…

And today, in a few hours, I’ll be a  Nyack tour guide for my oldest friend, Steven Nash.  We haven’t seen each other in 30 years.  How about that for a slice?

Whoops… I thought that St. Patrick’s Day was yesterday, my dad’s birthday…and hey, it’s today… So I’m not going to be said, dad… the sun is shining… Steven will want to toast to you. So Happy B day…

  1. Sometimes Facebook memories can jog us, but nothing wrong with that. Even if they sometimes sadden us there is still joy to be found in them. I imagine Tuvia and your dad are celebrating a birthday and St. Patrick’s Day.

  2. Hope your day has been a good one! We celebrated my mother-in-laws 89th birthday and enjoyed photos that my 5 year old great niece brought with her. She wanted to use photos to tell her life story:)
