The Twilight Zone
It's another road trip. Tonight is a lovely, cool evening being spent on the rolling, grasslands of Wyoming. Just over the border from 'big sky country'. I can't help but notice and yes, dwell, on that part of me that has gone missing. Mostly it is evident when looking around this familiar place or that familiar place and remembering, how, ever so recently, we were here together. Here. You and me. Alive. How quickly, things can change. So much happens in the blink of an eye. So many trite sayings for the obvious facts of life and death. Like little jewels wrapped in delicate tissue paper and kept in secret compartments... somewhere. When we need them they are always there, to be brought out and presented to others in their time of need. Precious and beautiful but useless really. A treatment for the loss but hardly a cure. What I am trying to say is that there are some events that can, and do, break a heart so badly that it is damaged & disabled. Still functioning, but not the same as it was. Tweaked and beating in another dimension. Jet-lagged. Obviously changed. Somewhat hopeful.
