  • The little girl I was once, innocently unaware as I was...

    My Pop-pop picked a tiny buttercup flower and placed under my chin. He said, "do you see how brilliant and bright, sparkly and clear, can you feel the tickle?" I replied, "no silly Pop-pop, I cannot see it's under my chin.", as I joyfully laughed.

    Dedicated in memory of my Pop-pop...

    Thank you for teaching me I was never to see it but to feel it within. It's the only way. I love and miss you!
