To forget one's past is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root. (Chinese Proverb)
This website will be a work in progress. I will be adding to it as I go along. My intention is for it to be about the past, my memories and my family's memories. The old, the precious and even the new.
“God Gave us memory so that we can have roses in December.” ~Thomas Merton " Loveliest of lovely things are they On earth that soonest pass away. The rose that lives its little hour Is prized beyond the sculptured flower." ~William Cullen Bryant Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind. Memories, sweetened through the ages just like wine. Quiet thoughts come floating down and settle softly to the ground. Like golden autumn leaves around my feet, I touched them and they burst apart with sweet memories, Sweet memories. Of holding hands and red bouquets and twilights trimmed in purple haze and laughing eyes and simple ways and quiet nights and gentle days with you. Memories, sweet memories. ~ Elvis Presley
You can find it in the kindness from a stranger on the street. You can feel it through a heartbeat from someone you just meet. Angels all around you, you can feel it everywhere. There's a world outside our windows that we reach through open minds. There's a space above our conscious we can light up everyday. Angels all around you, you can feel it everywhere. If you believe this world can change now, to bring more light into our lives. If you believe that love can guide us, to bring the universe into our minds. Angels all around you, you can feel it everywhere. Angels all around me and I feel the love and care. ~ Lajos Sitas
These golden moments in time are caught between the stars and the sky. You will have yours and I will have mine. These golden moments in time are like delicate flowers clinging on the vine. Once the rain comes they will be hard to find. These golden moments in time are like the tender snowflakes gently drifting to the ground, just too perfect to live or to stay around. These golden moments in time, savour each moment because they are fleeting, for that you can be sure. So innocent and magical, they will leave you wanting more. Each smile, each kiss, each tear, how precious and pure, but in time they will disappear. These golden moments in time, try not to shed a tear, just hold on to your dreams. Open you heart and open your mind and reminisce always about these golden moments in time. ~ by Louise Lagerman
“We can never turn back the pages of time, though we may wish to relive a happy moment, or say goodbye just one last time, We never can, because the sands of time continue to fall, and we cannot turn the hourglass over.”
