The Pendulum’s Daughter

Edgar knows her well
understands the weighted swing

from dark to light

Words are a gift from a special friend

Welcome to my world splashed with the many colors and hues of the rainbow, but when the clouds overshadow with heaps of black and white, beware and drift lightly lest you awake in the mists of demons that sleep.

Finally He Is Back Home

My dear friends, / Finally, after an almost a month’s stay in the hospital, my Dad is finally home. We almost lost him twice but thanks to the tenacity of his competent Oncologist/Hematologist and her caring love towards her patients; young and old, she was able to take him out of both of his crisis’s.
