Sarah, I am so sorry to hear your beloved mother has died. Please accept my most sincere condolences.

I hope in this terribly painful time that you, your family, and all those who knew and loved her can find solace and support from each other.

May she rest in everlasting peace, and that with time, the memory of her love for you brings you comfort.

..hey hey hello2 .. ahh ..I see you trying to be creative

Kleptomani ac - cess ion

Ha! Back atcha, Lisa! Creative indeed!

We're supposed to use either 2 or 3 letters to couple the new words, you slipped in 4. d'oh! ess - ay urveda

True enough, Gypsy. But we also need to use the ending word (not the middle) to begin the next grouping. angel7

I'll just go ahead and use 'cession' from E instead of 'ayurveda' from you to get us back on track.

cessiON - LYcanthrope



And I HAD a word that would have followed cession, and then given ayurveda, which somehow got muddled.

It's 40°C here, the slippery slope of fatigue is slick with sweat. We do not have air conditioning, to boot.

Love & Affection challenge: Visiting Hours

Visiting Hours Some thirty years ago, my mother was diagnosed with cancer and was in hospital for treatment of it. She was closest to the door in a double room on the gastro-intestinal ward of a large teaching hospital. Her chamber mate was about sixteen or seventeen, getting treatment for a painful, chronic auto-immune disease. The only thing separating the two beds was a privacy...

Remembrance Challenge - Remembrance is a Living Thing

Remembrance My maternal grandfather served in the First World War. A mining engineer, he enlisted in the Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Forces in 1915, at the age of 28, and served as a sapper in the north of France. By the time he was discharged in 1918, he had been wounded by shrapnel, subjected to gas attacks, and developed tachycardia. At the end of the war he returned home, married...

Recommended Read Challenge: Linda Ronstadt - Gypsy

"Start random playlist," he said, waiting expectantly, unseeing eyes turned straight ahead. Two guitar chords, loud and clear, shook loose a memory. He knew what was coming. Singing, she entered the spotlight, her clear, powerful voice pealing out: cheated and mistreated, when would she be loved. In his mind's eye he saw her, young, beautiful, sure of herself and of them. The music...

Recommended Read Letter to a Friend

  Dear Alan, It's been a while since I wrote to you. Did you know there's a story competition in your name? I had an idea for it, started to write something. It was clever, funny, titled Jankowski's Lost'n'Found . The story got lost, but it goes something like this: Jankowski and Al were old friends, co-owners of a cab they took turns driving. They had a flat rate, 4.20, due to the...

Come fly with me

Come with me, come here, We'll fly away soon, Give me your hand, And a hug Then settle on my rug Hang on tight, tuck arms and legs in, Are you ready to take off? Let's go for a spin! The altitude's no problem, We've plenty of air, As you will soon know by the wind in your hair. We'll swoop and soar Above earth and its cares - - Tedious, boring, Gloomy and drear! - Before landing quite...

Last Rites

“You don’t have to do this, you know. In fact, you shouldn’t be doing it.” “Yes, I know, but it’s all right, I’m going to do it.” “I really don’t think you should, and would prefer you didn’t.” “I’m still going to do it, it’s the least I can do for you. You shouldered me as a burden often enough, in the past.” “That was different, you weren’t old enough or big enough, and needed to...

Diving Deep

Chances, Taken without regret, Embraced, Without hesitation or doubt Like that time When you dove Into an ice cold lake Not on a dare But because it was there And to do so affirmed that you existed Those chances, No regrets, As you sank Stunned with shock by the bone chilling reality of the water - So cold So clear So intransigent yet so welcoming, Heart pounding, Adrenalin coursing,...

Open Windows, Open Season: Take Warning

I make my point by tossing him out a window, He'd been warned when he entered the room, "You found your way in, you can find it back out, And if it isn't done quickly, From me you'll get a good clout." I repeated my warning twice over, Was he hard of hearing or just buzzing about? At any rate my threat was put into action, With a fly swatter I rubbed his life out. * Author's note: I have...

A Modern Day Shopping Lament

So here I am waiting, And biding my time, For a shipment that was Ordered From a store that's on-line. Their products are alluring, Like snacks to consume, The virtual basket's expanding There is always more room For specialty items, Things new to the store, Best deals of the day, And more, so much more! I wasn't enticed - Well, maybe some of the time - But the items I needed Remained...

Lost and Found

  MARTIN HANDED A MUG of fresh coffee to Jane and slid into the seat opposite her at the breakfast table, pausing a moment before he spoke. “Jane, I need to ask you something.” Caught off guard by the statement, she slopped a little of the steaming liquid. “You always do that when I’m holding a drink,” she chided gently, dabbing the spill with a napkin. Her lighthearted tone belied...

  THE CALENDAR TAUNTED JANE, its little yellow-highlighted square outlined in a bold red stroke mocking her lack of progress. ‘You’re going to miss the deadline, you know. I’m just six weeks away now,’ it scoffed. ‘Whatever made you apply for that fellowship anyhow, and what could the panel have been thinking when they gave it to you? You’re no writer; you’ve proven that over the past...
