The evening breeze delivers a faint scent that triggers a softening memory. That time when young lovers strode hand in hand along the neglected garden path in the days of long shadows and quiet conversations. The old property hadn’t been occupied for at least a generation and all that was left was the bent and broken wood and the roses. The untamed and feral bush had spread outside of its ordained spot and claimed all it could touch. In the days prior to the walk he’d pruned back the thorns to reveal a flagstone path that lead to the pond unseen just behind the bushes. There he labored feverishly to rebuild the old Victorian gazebo and its bench. And this is where he guided her. They sat down and in subdued voices they dreamed about what a life would be like in the old Victorian manor if it was rebuilt to its former glory. As dusk fell he lit the old kerosene lamp on the table and her eyes widened as the soft glow danced on the water. He turned to bench and retrieved the small box from underneath. The diamond was small but it captured the lamplight and she said yes. The work was hard but in no time the house was ready to become a home once more. The roses were now tamed again and in later years they would watch eagerly from the kitchen window as their own son lead his love along the flagstone path lined with the same roses.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
