Where I’m from

I come from somewhere that you can never see,  although you may have been there yourself.

Where I’m from it’s always dark when I start my journey.   

Gradually, along the way there are glimmers of light. When I get to a bright spot, I stop to bask in its warmth.

In Case I Forget...

In case I forget...  Remind me who you are.  You, and your love for me make me everything that I am.

I'm scared...  I don't want to forget.  I don't want to be confused.  I don't want to scare you, or make you cry.  I don't mean to hurt you, or make you mad.  Please be patient with me.  It's me... I'm your dad.  I'm your husband... I gave you my all.  I don't mean to forget you.  Even if I don't know your name, or your face... My heart will always remember.

#BecauseAwkwardFamilyPhotos

A few weeks ago My oldest son, and namesake (lil' Euri) moved to Long Beach, CA.  I couldn't be more proud of the man that he has grown into.  He has always had a special connection with my mom, as he's her first grandchild.  I was just a couple of years older than he is now when he was born.  His "Brama" always made sure that he had everything he needed

Who's lesson is it anyway?

I started writing a post about how there were so many different bad, or sad things going on all around me, and I was stressed out and overwhelmed.  I was going to write about why I haven't had time to write because of all of the different directions that life has taken me over the past few months.  I was going to write about the lessons learned and say cliche things like...

Something in common...

We share memories that only we know, yet the older we get the further apart we grow.  I understand we have so many things going on.  Work, and kids, and plans and goals.  All these things lead to different paths.  Despite our differences, we have something in common...  It feels almost out of reach, and I don't want to let it go.  You and I don't talk about it.

Honor

Today I walked longer than usual.  As I walked I thought about them like I usually do.  I couldn't tell if the walking was helping to keep my thoughts contained, or if my thoughts were keeping my momentum moving forward.  Step after step.  Thought after thought, I walked.  Honor your Mother and Father,

Soulwinner

Soulwinner - not yet ready to give up on humanity, trying to fix things before it's too late.  This was written before I was born, but I also like to think that Dad is giving fatherly advice to me, as both the Soulwinner & as part of the "herd" that didn't always listen.

I miss him...

Write up your alley

 I found a platform through my love of technology.  I found something to write about because of him - a way to come to grips with his Alzheimer's diagnosis.  I yearn to have a part of what he talks about

My son and the Moon...

On August 28th 2007 the full moon over the Chihuahuan Desert appeared blood red during one of the longest and deepest lunar eclipses to be seen in the past 7 years.  The moon passed in front of the center of the Earth's shadow.  It was a magnificent sight to see!
