I forgot about the small stones of January.  http://www.writingourwayhome.com/p/river-jan-12.html

Today being the fifth day of the month

I will speak of loneliness

The loss of my Mom

Her life ended on Dec. 2

She was my Mom

My nurturer

My teacher

My rolemodel

My friend

Her leaving has left an emptiness inside of me

She lives in memory

These are the first five stones of January

  1. There are no better stones than these, Annell. It is nice to read that you and your mother were so close, and so hard to be without.

  2. Yes, I often think of how you must be missing her. Such a forever presence in your life leaves a large absence. Have you ever painted portraits, Annell? I wonder if painting her portrait would be a project you might find healing.
