Life is but a vapor........Thank you for this reminder! I woke one day, looked in the mirror and said, "How did I get this old, this fast?"

This story "Heaven" is so emotional and yet it's beautiful to know Brian is with our Lord.
Thank you for sharing this special story.
A Living Death (Short Story) - 5/22/2011 3:41:45 AM
Alzheimer's is such a horrendous disease, and to have both parents suffering from it must have been deeply challenging. Such pain too, to lose them both within a month or so. No time to grieve for one before the second one goes. Thank you for the stages of Alzheimer's - I didn't know that and shall now be looking out for them.

I love this line!:
"Life is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after"
Some seasons seem to go by faster than others......

"don't make a big deal of it." what a glimpse into his mind. was it a moment of lucidity, like the sun breaking through the clouds?
thanks for sharing that moment.
A Gift To You (Short Story) - 12/4/2010 2:28:26 PM
Truer words were never spoken. One day everything is normal and the next day you relize your future is here and the end is near. There are so many things I left undone and now I can't do them.
Thank you for sharing this Deborah.

Heaven (Short Story) - 3/7/2010 4:09:52 AM
A riverting story. I'm amazed that a young man of that age could write such an inspiring and thoughtful story! His message was loud and clear and gives one pause to really think about the cards each of us has waiting to be read. His death was tragic. I'm glad his parents have his writing to bring them comfort. Thanks for sharing this with us!....Love ...M

Grief - An Ongoing Journey (Short Story) - 1/28/2010 9:46:48 PM
"Grieving the loss of a loved one is worse than fearing the loss of a loved one." Deborah Tornillo
I learned that 5 years ago when my dad died of cancer. The days preceding his death were difficult but strangely calm. After he was gone and the loss was real, emotions were stronger, but I doubt that I have let the grief process conclude. Very shortly afterwards it was obvious that mom's mental state was not normal, not even for a widow of 55 years of marriage. I guess caring for her has left some of him in me so grieving for him would be grieving for me. Makes no sense. You are one strong lady. I hope your husband is doing OK, and either way I hope you are doing OK. Patrick
Every 70 Seconds.... (Short Story) - 1/28/2010 9:31:46 PM
Ah, Mary. She & I have had some correspondence. She's in a really tough spot and doesn't post nearly as much as she once did. Patrick
The Beast (Short Story) - 1/28/2010 9:27:54 PM
It is indeed a beast. So far mom's mood is quite constant and we haven't experienced the "stealing" accusations which I understand is common. But her short term memory is very poor, thus current event conversations nearly immpossible. She has difficulty choosing things so mostly I choose for her. Excellent, helpful story. Patrick
Grief - An Ongoing Journey (Short Story) - 1/21/2010 5:10:47 PM
Deborah, my heart goes out to you in your many trials. And you turn to God, Who is fashioning you into a sparkling jewel. You have much to offer to those who know you and observe your faith. I will pray for you, and I'm going to track your writing for awhile at least, so that with God's help, I will know how to pray.
(I track only a few people because of the time involved.)
God bless you and renew your strength daily.
With love in His Name, Connie
Fear, Hope and Faith (Short Story) - 12/15/2009 4:52:56 PM
Dear Deborah, Oh I had no idea your husband was ill too. I am so sorry. You poor lady I feel so bad for you and your loved ones. I once called you a hero, now you know what I meant by that. You have a great inner strength to persevere. We must pray together for you your husband and your children. The LORD works some time in mysterious ways. So he is with you as are your friends. And I am one of them.
GOD BLESS YOU, and YOUR FAMILY too.

Have You Seen My Father... (Poetry) - 10/12/2013 11:09:45 AM
We need to refound the government for this century, not the eighteenth. Great idea.
Have You Seen My Father... (Poetry) - 10/12/2013 5:59:05 AM
Yes, and to think that a rag tag band of misfits can cause so much chaos. The evils of ideology.

You got the right stuff! Well done Deb!
God Bless You!
Inside of You (Poetry) - 9/24/2013 5:06:29 PM
I am in awe of your capacity for succinct showmanship... this one cavorts with the reader like a camera cavorts with an actor, subtle, expressive, sincere in its candor, sure of its focus, fill its lens with only what matters and teasing the immaterial significance into something metaphysically physical... explosive in its serenity, on a scale of the panorama, but yielded tightly like a close-up to melt confusion in a pool of placid, highly delineated implosions that leave the reader wanting, no needing to embrace the dance of life with every fiber of her being until his her is able somehow to dance again... (and this was on the first read...)... send us more... send in the clowns... send us up... higher and higher! Wonderful, Deborah.
Captain (Poetry) - 9/6/2013 8:17:18 AM

If we are to captain our own ship, we have to let go once in a while so that we can get on the right course to a distant shore.
Captain (Poetry) - 9/1/2013 7:35:35 PM
I love boats and tales about them.
I love poetic stories even more.
Your poetic adventure touched me to the core.
Multiple Blessings to you Deborah and welcome back!

Beyond Numb (Poetry) - 9/1/2013 7:23:58 PM
Amazing how we can hide grief or pain in the mind-numbing but comforting rituals of life. The disengagement of the actual thinking part of us and the submergence in comfortable and well-worn activities. But no matter how long we hide our feelings in the bicameral pathways of our minds, we have to surface eventually and work through pain. Ever forward Deborah. Bob
Captain (Poetry) - 9/1/2013 7:10:23 PM
Control is subjective. Once we know we have it we are under the impression that we posess it forever, then we find that the next second, hour, lifetime, everything will be taken away. Ripped away by nature, circumstance or the hidden purposes of a loving God. Riding the wave, navigating the channel, mastering the water, call it whatever, the science of life is in the living. Most of the time the illusion of control is just that; illusion. The art is in the navigation. Well put in the lines Deborah. You've made the crossing. Bob

PS: We miss you on the Den...
Danny... (Poetry) - 5/28/2013 11:27:06 AM
One of the all-time greatest lyrics that never fails to bring a tear. Let us hope that someday your brother's remains will return to rest near yours.
As for me and my Vietnamese partner, we have decided that a simple cremation and being tossed in the wind will take us back to mother Earth and away from all the war and suffering.

A Clover Field (Poetry) - 5/18/2013 4:33:47 PM
The Red Clover is definitely more, Deborah,
..."than today's thoughts"....it will be for most

healthy active life ... vitality...when the hormones
start to fluctuate.........taken in form of Promensil.
Thank you for thoughts provoking, great poem.
With warm regards Isabella.

I have uncontrollable spasms. At times they can be painful. There doesn't seem to be any relief except to cut life short. I'm hoping for stem cell therapy to do the trick.

Can't expand on what John has said but my prayers are for your healing.

Hereditary (Poetry) - 1/22/2013 11:35:40 AM
I don't have complete information to respond. It appears that your son or daughter may have a hereditary disease that you're trying to deal with. After what you went through with your mother and father, I can't see why you would be faced with more.
Stay strong and write.

Nice poem you've written here. Thank you for sharing. Certainly leaves a reading thinking. I found a typo in the line "Ink spill’s out an uncertain belief." In this line the apostrophe should be taken out.

Which way shall I take the course to my reader’s hearts,
What scale and tools do I collect with,
What voyeur’s wrap I claim in readiness.
Are the ages of my father come to bear,
Or will be for next generation’s benefit:
And for sure hope luck to smile a lot,
Unless I weaken in devotion,
That I harbor this pretext,
Where course is subject to a wanton age.
Gather, flock with us; examine all to beyond:
Valiant person have surpassed our time.

What a wonderful array of thoughts. I like what you have to say.
I wish it were that simple and it could really be that way.
But folks want to take away our rights to be kind, loving and free.
Then replace them with demonic views forced upon to you and me.
It's OK to curse, smoke dope, use witchcraft and sex in full view.
But for us to stand up for simple Christan values today is taboo!
They act upset when kids get killed and are placed in an early tomb.
But killing kids is OK with them when it's done inside of the womb.
They even want to erase "Choose Life" from all the signs on display.
Then because of their bad choices, we are the ones who have to pay.
I rest my case.
Merry Christmas Deborah!

I Don't Understand (Poetry) - 12/10/2012 7:17:28 AM
Unpardon me but I relent it boldly;
For it is far ahead, if I can be sure of it,
And far it is, that my hallucination be valid,
And hallucination it is, as it should be,
And however, unlike itself, mysterious, unknown, and untested,
So it be foreseen in my tireless search.

Intriguing - great flow - there must be a bottom level to the meaning - I'm into the third tier or do I read too much into this interesting work?! Nice work.

wonderful expressive words of love
Freedom of Speech (Poetry) - 11/18/2012 8:02:53 AM
The audacity of hope is that we are free to express it. It cannot be shouted down by ignorance and doubt. Talk is cheap, but in time, the truth prevails.

That's the problem with all the intrigue and classified documents that shouldn't be secret. We have been and are becoming a more paranoid nation more concerned about “leaks” and their consequences than the truth. From my perspective, getting the dirty laundry out and letting it hang, clears the air quite quickly.

“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” I believe by a fellow named Abraham Lincoln, a progressive Republican.
Friends (Poetry) - 11/9/2012 10:32:35 AM
Apparently all these truths that Edward mentions were not known to Dr. Rogers in his lifetime. This is capitalism gone amok, when only a small percentage of the population is wealthy and the rest struggles to eat and have shelter. And no one can tell me everyone who is struggling hasn't worked or expects a hand out. This is not government for and by the people, it's the rich buying their way to power. Maybe in the next four years democracy and capitalism will begin to work again as it was intended to. That is NOT socialism.
Friends (Poetry) - 11/9/2012 9:37:03 AM
Deborah...outstanding words have been written, as they continue on in you! Thank you for saying what a lot of us have tried to elaborate! I loved Adrian Rogers, he was one of my favorite Pastors, I miss him so much. I had a 50 mile drive to work everyday and listened to him every morning before I started my day. He left a great foundation of wisdom for Americans to adhere too..
Friends (Poetry) - 11/8/2012 1:57:09 PM
What if Dr. Rogers knew…
--that the bottom 50 percent of all tax filers have an average income of $15,292.
--that this same group has no net worth at all (assets minus debts)
--that the top 20 percent have$11.5 trillion of income, and $53 trillion of net worth.
--that the richest country in history also has the most unequal sharing of wealth history.
--that rich and poor had equal talents, equal intelligence, equal love of country and equal love of God.
--that most wealth is inherited, directly or indirectly.
--that wealth is the cause of poverty.
--that if the rich shared just $1 trillion of their wealth, the bottom 50 percent’s income would double. All 70 million of them.
Oh, my mistake. Dr. Rogers does know. He is in heaven, where the truth is known to all.
Friends (Poetry) - 11/8/2012 10:57:17 AM
I have some of Dr. Rogers books and know him to be a wise man. He speaks the truth and sadly, government has not learned a thing from all the wisdom that has been put forth over the years.

Good points are made in your poem. Let's keep the faith. Remember Love and Hate are both REAL but we can't see Love or hate but we sure know it when we feel it. Faith is believing in what we have not seen. We are blessed so don't be derailed by all the bull from the rest.
Peace, much love and abundant blessings,

Then and Now (Poetry) - 10/27/2012 11:58:35 AM
Reads like a tormented cry for help. I know that sound, I heard it last night after I couldn't sleep for two hours because I was cold and my legs bothered me. She was at wits end because I couldn't convey to her what I needed in my search for sleep. This has gone on for twenty years and is likely to continue at least ten more. I'm not sure she can continue to take on the burden she has.
Somehow, I am able to handle it as long as I have help. But all of my helpers are now complaining and I'm not sure if I can replace them when they quit.
Then and Now (Poetry) - 10/27/2012 5:12:03 AM

A Good Man (Poetry) - 10/16/2012 8:36:11 AM
Q. What would you call a Congress, a White House, and a Supreme Court filled by "none of the above?"
A. A good start.
A Good Man (Poetry) - 10/16/2012 7:51:24 AM
I see two good men in the picture. Both have integrity. We expect too much from the person in the office of the president and they can never live up to our expectations in less we understand that our government is made up of three parts and only one of those parts is the executive. On the other hand, as citizens, we should not blame our faults on the government when we can correct them without the government.
So be careful who you vote for, because you may get what you wanted and it may be what you like.
A Good Man (Poetry) - 10/15/2012 5:27:05 PM

A Good Man (Poetry) - 10/15/2012 3:02:54 PM
Half-truths are the norm.
But Clinton re-defined sex.
He was a good president?
I am not so sure. I would not trust him inside my door.
Thank you for the poetic political message.
God knows who speaks truth.
If we all pray to God for a good leader
God will insure the right man comes our way...

My Daughters (Poetry) - 10/12/2012 7:54:47 AM
I sense a real concern for their welfare. It is within you to make sure that your daughters are safe and secure. To not leave it to others. If you give them freedom, they will explore on their own and learn from their experience. If you hold them to close, they will become dependent upon you and on others after you're gone.
My Daughters (Poetry) - 10/11/2012 11:20:07 PM
A lot of thought went into your poem.
An incomplete, broken and uncertain life can still be mended with care and love.
GOD is love...

Next Year (Poetry) - 10/8/2012 6:22:30 PM
I think we all hope and wonder if next year will be better when we are grappling with the passing one...you ask the question eloquently, and surprisingly timed as I think many of us have these types of reflections near the end of the calendar year...I believe that small surprise just makes the entire poem more interesting, and Fall is notorious for heralding the end, and depression as the sunlight is withdrawn. Very nice work. Be well, Kathy
