JOHANNA IS DEAD

Posted on October 6, 2017 at 6:00am 4 Comments

NOTE: Every couple of weeks I go through my trove of essays and poems. I found this one today. Not sure if I posted it on OS.

PROLOGUE: I wrote this five years ago. At the time I had just moved into continuing care with my husband. The facility ( called a village)  was set up so that all of the residential units could be accessed via hallways which were connected to a central lobby. It looked and felt like a hotel. At the end of each corridor was a bulletin board announcing…

Does anyone know anything about Skypixie...he used to e-mail me when my husband was ill. I am almost afraid to ask. I think he took me on as a project and tried to convert me to medical weed. Thing is, I think my husband was a bit put out that I might have more than a casual interest in him. Was re-doing my contact list today and came across his name. At one time when Open was Closing...I asked for a lot of e-mails just in case. Have them somewhere.

CULEBRA IS A SMALL ISLAND. DECIMATED NOW BY MARIA. I posted this on OPEN some years back. It is also about loss.

A DAY AT THE BEACH

It happens every night. Aqua waves, black in the moonlight, rush to clean the coral sand before sunrise. There is an order to this. All that belonged to yesterday is erased."  

Flamenco Beach: Culebra PR

The first footsteps of the day, the first words drawn on the sand…today, will be mine. The surf is a sparse fringe of lacy froth. It offers enticements of opalescent shell and bits…

There are some things that are too funny to explain. You have to be there or hear it for yourself. Sooo, a while ago I noticed that Siri (mine has a male voice with a English accent) was calling me Every Day. No, he wasn’t calling me every day but was addressing me as Every Day. Some of my messages that I sent were noted, at my end, sent from Every Day.  I noticed that my name was changed on my account too.  Right under Anne Armand was typed Every Day.

Yesterday I had an AOL…

"On the other hand. .. If she sold it, where's the money? If she died without a will  and the son had no siblings everything would go to him anyway.... Claiming the jewelry was lost or stolen would  be a way for him to avoid or reduce…"

""The other theory was that the son took it and wanted it to look like a burglary. As I said, she disliked him and more that him, was the really nasty daughter-in-law." Quite likely she sold the jewelry.... He had no need or reason to draw…"

"Used to get semi-regular emails from Sky, latterly from the BC interior. Don't know what -- if anything -- has happened. If you or Kosh find out, please let us know."

"I haven't been in contact with him in a couple of years, but I had his email. I just sent him a note askIng if I could give you his email address. But I have no idea how he is currently."

"I've been having trouble commenting. I'm on an iPad. What seems to work for me most often is writing the comment, cooking it, leaving the post, returning to it. Pasting, and commenting. "

"This is a wonderful post. I wonder some about your husband in all this, not that his voice belongs here but grief is I think harder alone. But you'd know that better than I would. "

Profile Information

Bio
What I used to do or who I was, is no longer relevant. I am still evolving. Once whole, I am now less. Once a child, I am now an orphan. Once the mother of a daughter, I am bereft. Once married I am now a widow. I write about these things.

Also, you will notice all the emails your getting from comments on blogs and such. Easy to consolidate into one daily email. Go to "settings" in the top right hand corner and it should take you to "email" click on that. Kinda can't remember exact steps but it's easy. There is a forum on this also.

Play around. If you click on the members tab it shows all of us. Many are still using their OS names but with different pictures, some are using their real names which may be confusing. If you have any problems navigating, hit up Lorianne, check out the FAQs and the forums. You can friend and I actually posed the question why, as I didn't see a purpose. Still kinda don't, but I know there are reasons some may want to. You can also pretty up your page with cool stuff like pictures and different themes. Good luck!
