Halloween one

“You have forever ruined mermaids for me.” One Friday morning in late October of 2008, I got a completely unexpected text from DK. (Neither of us were big texters then; we very rarely exchanged them. More’s the pity we didn’t keep it at that in the following years.) He would be finishing up an appointment […]

Octobers

November 8, 2011 is probably the biggest red letter day in my relationship with DK. I think even more so than the dreadful January day in 2008 when I learned that he was not the single father I believed him to be, but a (apparently) happily married man. That was a very bad day. November […]

In the past eighteen days I’ve traveled ten thousand plus miles and visited dozens of English villages, towns, cities, churches, restaurants, beaches, butchers, bakers, country stores and country lanes. I made my way by car, plane, train, coach and traversed many miles by “push bike”, the English term for a bicycle, and my own two […]

Boxer briefs, flat files and a brief break

 I had to make a Target run today. As I made my quick zip through the store grabbing the things I needed, I passed the men’s undergarments. Boxer briefs were on display. It is the damnedest  things sometimes that spark a memory. DK wore boxer briefs. Beautifully. Not that I ever saw him in them for […]

Summer showers

“You’re such a hippie!” (The summer shower art was created & posted here last summer, but the story is new today in honor of the Summer Solstice.) DK always grinned when he said that to me, usually with a gentle poke to my belly. I don’t think of myself as a hippie, but I didn’t […]

My dog has fleas

January 8, 2010. Friday. I’m prepping a job that shoots on Monday. It is bitterly cold. DK & I have a date for dinner tonight, which is practically a miracle since, from the first time we met over two years ago, he has never liked to plan ahead for anything. At least not with me. […]

How does my garden grow?

June 2, 2013

I have lost my heart for so many of the things I love since I met DK. Movies, meals, restaurants, menus, music.  It didn’t happen overnight; the erosion was slow. For many of them my fondness at first grew with the anticipation of finally sharing them with someone with whom I was in such sync; who […]
