MARCH 16, 2021: “All Things New” …

… that moment you ask her to “do something fun” with the little glass jar you kept from that time he whisked you away to a downtown staycation “King Williamson style” that once contained the $15 dollar gummy bears he devoured in less than sixty seconds! Yah! THAT HAPPENED! Meanwhile, here we are, turning trash into treasure yet again, making beauty from the most random things from the most extraordinary moments while remembering only the best things that need to be remembered to keep his legacy alive while leaving out all the rest. I asked her to make it coordinate with this hand crafted clay tile she’d made me earlier last year so I could set them together in the window sill in front of my kitchen sink where I swear I spend more than half my “MOM LIFE”!E

My “Mona Lisa” is not just an artist – she is artistry come to life. Both my works of art are the most beautiful ballads my heart as ever known and I just can’t say it enough. Her heart, imagination, internal beauty and grace never cease to amaze me, especially in all the endless ways she’s able to look through the darkest of forests and find that one thing that brings it to life. She looks for the best in every person and thing, and is slow to discount the possibilities in what others may find useless.

She is her mother’s daughter. He is his mother’s son. Not only do they both love making “all things new”, even more so do they continually renew me, “the luckiest queen on this Earth“! I am so lucky to still be here to witness my legacy burning up through both their ashes to their “phoenix” ways of life.
