These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Bittersweet birthday

I just wished my big brother, my eldest sibling, a happy birthday. Today is his 79th birthday. What a great thing, living to 79 and still be as active as he is. This is a very recent photo; hard to believe he is 79, isn't it?

Happy Birthday, Leo, big brother and friend.

The bittersweet of the story is that five weeks ago today we lost our sister, his twin. She and I were close, but I don't know if I could miss her more than he does. Twins share a special bond. She talked about that a lot. Whatever, we are both missing her on this day.

Happy Birthday, Cleo. We miss you, sissy.


  1. Sending you many hugs my friend.

    Love you.

  2. It is a bittersweet day indeed Lyn. I wish you and your brother peace. He looks amazing by the way!
    Love Di ♥

  3. My oldest brother is soon to be 74. Ten years older than I. We lost our sister some years ago when she was only 46. I still want to talk to her.

  4. Merikay, I know that feeling. My parents have been gone for 10 years, and I still want to talk to them, tell them thing;, now it is the same with my sis. It's the most unacceptable part of aging, losing the people you never said enough to in the time you were given with them. :')

  5. Oh I am so sorry to hear about your loss... I will keep you in my prayers... and your brother too.

  6. Such a good looking family Lyn. We all know that we can't keep people forever, but I think we always wish that we could. Peace to you Lyn!

  7. Thank you, Lisa.

    Moni, you said it so well .... if only we could keep each other.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
