Still a dreamer…Old Memories and New Hopes

There are times, especially if you are prone to high emotions, that you experience love on a very spiritual level. Family,friends, or experiences. I was fortunate to have such a day and evening, and so grateful. I know everyone doesn’t have this in their lives, and I wish they did. First, I received an email from my dear niece in Virginia. Her daughter, my enchanting grandniece shared her fortune cookie with me…and who doesn’t read fortune cookies. This one said Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. I experienced, and that is what I do, whenever I see a Woody Allen film, his latest, Blue Jasmine. Wonderful cast led by Cate Blanchett. The film was terrific, and I enjoyed, but it was the person I was with, that made the day and night so perfect. My son’s wife, I call her my “daughter in love,” and without getting overly personal, she is a daughter in every way but the birth process. She brings sunshine to the lives of others. We saw the coming attraction of the film Cutie and the Boxer. A New York love story that explores the chaotic 40 year marriage of boxing painter Ushio Shinohara and his wife Noriko. A line in the film “We’re like two flowers in one pot.” I do believe, feelings of overflowing love give you memories that last a lifetime.

  1. I would like to add my younger son and his family live on the West Coast. When they were married over 25 years ago, I told my new daughter in law, she was so fortunate to have a great mom and dad, but you can always use another woman friend, and that is what we have become. When I am visiting, we have laughter, fun times, and grateful for the memories.My older son’s wife has no parents. We were looking, and found each other.
