Tiny Darling

Our Darling

the little headstones always make me melancholy. This one was broken and lying rather haphazardly in the leaves between two larger stones in a much older section of the graveyard we visited this weekend. I did not get the sense that any of the three were related, alas. Someone was obviously loved, but I wonder, where did Darling’s people go?

I am taking some flowers to Darling this week. I don’t actually know who he or she was, but figure that it is good to be remembered.

    I’ve gotten attached to little tombstones, too… always a little heartwrenching to see the tiny ones.

    How are you? And Captain? And daughters? and… stuff? I so miss you on LJ. Not that I write much, but…

    I miss you too! Are you on Facebook?

    I find I’m just doing a lot less blogging of the intensely personal sort that I used to do over on LJ. It isn’t that stuff isn’t going on, it’s just, the way I talk about it has changed. I should really go check in on my friends there more, though.

    We are fine. I am fine. The girls are thriving and I am so in love with that man. Life is… complex and changing and scary and wonderful.

    How are you and R and the girls? I should go catch up.
