Hey ALH,   That works out well if what our mind is replaying are the happier memories.  More and more I find these returning.  I'm grateful for that.

Even so, I still feel lost.  

The lyrics to an old Jackson Browne song (These Days) have been playing in my mind lately.         https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kk7vCHvof4

"Well I've been out walking

I don't do that much talking these days
These days
These days I seem to think a lot
About the things that I forgot to do
For you
And all the times I had the chance to

And I had a lover
It's so hard to risk another these days
These days
Now if I seem to be afraid
To live the life I have made in song
Well it's just that I've been losing so long

Well, I'll keep on moving, moving on
Things are bound to be improving these days
One of these days
These days I sit on corner stones
And count the time in quarter tones to ten, my friend
Don't confront me with my failures
I had not forgotten them"

I'm not very cheerful tonight.  Hopefully you are having a better day.  Cynthia


A losing hand.

Hi Cynthia, Your right, but my mind isn't replaying the happier memories. It's mostly replaying everything that happened after she got sick. For some reason I just can't shake it. 

It's gotten a little easier, so maybe I'm slow and need a little more time.

Certainly a lot of truth to the lyrics of that song.

Hope your still playing the drums and keeping busy.

Good luck and take care of yourself.

I've been a widower for 375 days now.  Here's my favorite poem:

Two men in prison,

Locked behind bars,

One saw mud,

The other saw stars.

George,  Maybe the prisoner that saw stars, didn't have as much time to serve. LOL.


Good luck.

A losing hand, what you don't understand is that I'm a prisoner to my emotions.
