|I was really wrapped up in your poem, Lois, but had to give special pause at the idea of eating a fried clam. If we ever have an AD reunion, I invite you to bring clams, lots of 'em. I'm with you on not favoring the cold weather and short days--bring on the spring---Jerry|

|You do an excellent job in this poem, of showing the grandeur and beauty and depth of everyday life. I think everyday is a gift from God, and you certainly have a way with words to capture that well.
Keep translating your soul into words,Lois,keep touching others. : )

A wonderful trubute to your loved one.
I am very saddened by your loss of Tom, he was truly a great man.
I lost my first wife over twenty years ago.
The story about her is on the den "A Slice of a Short Life."
It took me 20 years to write, I hope you can read it one day.
Thank you for sharing.

Was that glowing Halley's comet that flew by?
No, Lois J. Christiansen lit up a poet's sky!

|A lot of things going on in your world with winter, bingo, church activities, and of course, your trip to the cemetery. It's something I want to do soon because both my mom and dad passed away in January.
Sorry you lost your money at bingo...

|Lois, these musings were fun to read, altho it was so cold and you lost your money, and you ventured to the gravesite...you know Tom loves you too. You got out of the house; didn't want to stay inside and grow numb...so at least you are doing things...the music is your love, and listen to what makes you happiest...I listen to allkinds of music, loud, noisy, sweet, romantic, kid stuff too... just enjoy it...and know you are loved by all... hugs, lindalaw|

|Yes I sometimes think that is the only cure, for the more I stay in and try to avoid the cold and snow the more my moody swings persist. So maybe you are right...embrace the weather and life will embrace us.
