My Photo


  • a happy, ordinary, middle-aged, suburban woman who paints odd pictures, gardens in a straw hat, lives with the love of her life, is owned by one cat and the ghosts of several others, and walks a little funny 'cause she has a fake leg. She started this website because there's more to life than what we lose, and we need to let each other know what's possible, even if it's only a happy, ordinary life.

Keep saying your truth and living the way it feels right to you. I'm sending a hug.

dear little sister

you left much love behind you

you would be surprised

just a year ago

tears, sadness all day and night

now i look for you

finding you in surprising

moments, thoughts, places

you would be amused

you would blog and laugh out loud

but you would care and

want to know good came out of

your short, well lived life

i cannot stop the

looking feeling and wanting

you to be here now

but i can love you

and live on for you in small

ways making you proud

big sisters cannot

save their little sisters - sigh -

you are missed always

love, lynn


i am very sorry to see that sara has passed. i found my way here after following her links from her fontspace profile. i am a big fan of her fonts. she was very talented and her passing is a loss for us all :(
