New Music, New Words, New Life...

Ken in Moscow, 1980's.
In Ecuador, before our wedding in early '80's.
Picture taken in Virginia Beach , '79 or '80.
So dear friends, I have been silent for so long, and am just here to tell you that when I am ready I will write more.

But, for now, I have added some Leo Kottke songs. My hubby was his most devoted fan in all the world, no doubt, without getting creepy or anything. Leo is to be appreciated especially, in person. In concert, he is so very entertaining, as he weaves numerous stories at the same time, tuning his various guitars along the way. He is extremely spatial , and that I can certainly appreciate. Did I tell you how funny he is?

It is so very tough here without my honey, and I miss him so very much. We all do. He will be missed by many....and his mother, lost her 98 year old mother on 25 Mar., and her only son, Ken, on 25 May.

Please know that your prayers , warm words, emails,....are so comforting and appreciated. I am still here. Forgive me while I find my way without the man I love.

Ive been wondering how you have been doing. I cant imagine how hard it must be to carve a new path with out your beloved Ken. I know that you have a tremondeous faith in God, and I know that he will lead the way for you. And I will continue to pray for you!
wish I lived near you, I would come take you shopping and out to eat.. and try to distract you some. We'll be here when you feel the urge to blog.. try not to leave us for too long.

My heart is in my throat and I can't seem to find words that could possibly console you. Just know you are in my heart. I am here as are many dear friends if and when you need us.

I've been thinking about you and wanted to stop in for a visit.
I was taken over by emotion when I read your touching words. Music does soothe the soul. Lyrics can bring us back to a glorious place and time. Mine and hubby's folks enjoyed the big band era music. From time to time we play their music and reminisce about our parents and how the music brought them such joy.
My sweet friend take your time, I'll be here whenever the mood strikes you to post a little note.

Sweet wishes,
