Blog #35~ Looking for the Light
A dark cloud has cast upon us during a time when we all look forward to the holidays and rejoice. My heart breaks into a million different pieces.
Throat tightens, gulp
Tears shed, hearts broken, lives crushed, innocence lost
Hard to breathe and fathom; unthinkable
*Brumous skies clung densely above, silent… over heavy hearts……
None of us saw this coming. I planned on cheerful, easy piece about Christmas over the years this week……But all of that doesn’t feel right. You may be wondering about Nick’s feelings now. Nick has no idea of this tragic, horrific event. He leads a life of innocence that I wish we all could experience to some degree. But Nick feels sadness and has empathy when others are in pain. If someone is crying he will too. It’s a silent cry that tears at your heartstrings.
Light a candle and take a few moments to reflect….. This life we have is but one, and might be cut short in an instance. Hug those you love a little tighter and remind them how much they mean to you.
That’s what is in my noggin this week.
*Brumous– Of grey skies and winter days; filled with heavy clouds or fog; relating to winter or cold, sunless weather.

Perfect heartfelt message for this week.
Glad you could feel the message I wanted to convey Ali. Thanks for your input, see you soon. 🙂
Beautifully written, tenderly felt. The choice of words, the segues and the impact all masterfully done. loved it.
Ha! – I wanted to work in the clichés..Gripping, Poignant, Compelling, Nuanced, Lyrical, Tour de force, Haunting, Deceptively simple, Rollicking (no that won’t work), Timely, Page-turner, Sweeping, Riveting, Powerful…but beautifully written, tenderly felt said it all…
Thank you Jim, and I do like the cliches too, I may have to weave those in my future writing. Appreciate your feedback and your way with words. 🙂
Hey T…. I thought about a comment to add to your blog, but, I’m having a hard time with it. I agree with your comment about hugging those you love a little tighter. Have a good week…
