|Some things are almost impossible to capture in words, for few only to read and understand. They don't reflect parts of the past that were kind to us, but like anything else they make us who we are, prepare us for futures ahead in which we - different from those who did not go through such events - will exist cherishing different aims that we will try to reach in different ways. The unkind places and times in all our lives will ultimately lead to one destiny that has nothing to do with brutality, indifference or fear.

|Yes, a rose is a rose, even if a dying one without nourishment. Your words say it so well; tender, softly but surely. This one is a verbal treat... with an overripe cherry on the bottom! - Bill

|Do you ever preserve roses
just let them dry
to a soft brown color
the shape stays the same, but the scent is gone
I do this..........I find them beautiful, yet sad soulveniers..
