we’ve been friends for over 40 years
at this gathering
following a recent loss
we came to realize
that between the four of us
we have but one surviving birth parent
making us close to all being orphans
we paid tribute
to those who came before us
with all of their strengths and challenges
for had they not lived
there would be no us
nor our children
nor our grandchildren
nor those yet to come.
“the songs of our ancestors are also the songs of our children”
loving my new journals and so looking forward to filling them
“language allows us to reach out to people, to touch them with our innermost fears, hopes, disappointments, victories.
to reach out to people we’ll never meet.
it’s the greatest legacy you could ever leave your children or your loved ones:
the history of how you felt.”
-simon van booy
i’ll never forget that wonderful yellow cake with the warm apple topping
my mom would sometimes serve us after dinner
years later when i was a mom
i thought of it again
asking her for the very fancy recipe
she was surprised
oh that? it wasn’t fancy at all
i bought a pre-made pound cake, cut it into slices,
heated up a can of apple pie filling, and poured it on top.
then i was the one who was surprised.
What secret family recipe is in your lineage?
“don’t let the secret recipe die with the inventor.”

no finer way to honor this hero
