  • i met her at my great aunts funeral, she comes from another time,. and thats something i have learnt to appreciate. i am 21. she is over 80. after listening to the stories she told me of her youth, which involve doing volunteer work at orphanages in london when she was in her twenties, meeting the queen at buckingham palace, being a school matron and catching married men trying to sneak into girls dorms and the summers she spent at the beach. she showed me old pictures. that was when i knew. we had met before. in another life. perhaps we were lovers.

    to me it felt like i had a lot to learn from her., she was full of stories that captured my being,. time stopped,. she was flattered when i asked to take her picture, a manner and grace that was so pure. true beauty. i am honored to have met her... or to have been given the change for my soul to find her again. Miracles don't have to happen instantly.

    she was even more flattered when i asked for her address to post her the picture when i was to get it developed.... still have not sent it yet.
