New Beginnings

New Beginnings

It’s a New Year…
2017 is only a few days old
It’s a year that I have been looking forward to
A year that will be filled with new things
But also with memories
of those who I love that are no loger here
It’s a year of challenges
Of a new apartment (hopefully)
It’s a year of changes
What lays ahead I cannot see (well not everything)
I do not know
But I am optimistic
Some things will be positive
others won’t be
And glad that 2016 is now behind me
It’s a new beginning
It’s a year with new life
our family will grow
With love and laughter
With hugs, kisses, smiles and tears
It’s a year of hope!

Happy New Year!

In The Attic

“Where are you?” little Mike called out, no longer motivated to play hide and seek, reluctantly he climbed up the ladder to the attic. His older sister would surely not be hiding up there in the haunted place?
“Where are you?” little Mike called out again. “I give up you know, I no longer want to search for you Lisa!”

Still there was no reply. “Are you in the attic?” Continue reading “In The Attic”


Laughter filled the air. Happiness was upon them. Everything was perfect.

“I love you!” she mouthed as she picked up their youngest child.

He got up to join his family by the slide in the park. At that moment, gravity started to evaporate, he was loosing his balance. Gasping for air he, realised that reality was fading away at a worrisome speed, slipping away through his hands like water.


Panting, he sat up in his bed.

He looked around, nothing was how he remembered. And everything was exactly how he remembered.

He was in his little apartment, where he had been miserable, trying to find love, trying to find a job. There was no wife, there were no three kids. There was uncertainty. He had thought that this was a memory long forgotten, but it was his reality. And what he had mistaken for reality was only a dream.
