A lovely post of your journal pages Delwyn. I've enjoyed looking at these very much! We have very similar travel journals, I treasure mine too. Aren't they wonderful to look back on?thank you for sharing.xo lori
A moving and tenderly spiritual account of your recent travels. I do hope your father is making a good recovery.
I really enjoyed looking at your scrap booking pages.
It was wonderful to view a few scenes of the seasons, of your life and feel some of your thoughts, Delwyn. I enjoyed seeing the 'once upon a time' photo of you and the ones with your parents.It's nice to look back and remember the different Homes and Times in our lives. I can tell the spring and summer of your life were beautiful, which now make beautiful memories for your autumn and their winter! Hope your father is resting well and enjoying the memory of the 'loving' outing you gave him!...Wanda
Oh Delwyn,I love these,they are somehow familiar to me!!Wonderful and full of good feelings of being home!! :o)Bye,bye...
Hello LoriI do have fun collecting and assembling bits and pieces from my travels and you never know what what piece of seeming junk will later trigger wonderful memories.Thanks for your sweet comments todayHappy days
Hello Martinthank you for your concern and comments Martin. My father is very frail and lives in a rest home as you probably gathered, but over the year he has been in care he has mellowed and become more accepting of his lot which has surprised us...he has stopped running away thank goodness...Happy days
Hi Lissthanks for calling by with your notehappy days
Hi WandaThank you for your lovely warm response Wanda. Its interesting to see how so much can be stirred up when I slip over to NZ and my original hometown.I plan to fill many more autumn days yet...Happy days
Hi AlexI love that new photo of you...In what ways do the contents of the journal pages pages seem familiar to you? Do you mean in the way the images remind you of your childhood...happy days
A beautiful and very moving post, Delwyn. My best wishes to your father, I hope he will be able to return to his "rest" home soon.
Hi Delwyn:This is such a sweet and tender honouring of heart and hearth.I hope your father is doing better. (Excuse me if there is already another partial comment published. I have experienced some technical challenges navigating your blog today.)
Thank you for this touching peek into your travel journal. I got this feeling that we're all in this together, the whole catastrophe, as Zorba the Greek might say. It was so tender.
DelwynReading this post, I had tears in my eyes. Yes, it is a "Wonderful World and For everything there is a season."Thank-You so much for sharing your personal journal with us, Delwyn! Just knowing you through blogging, I can tell you are a very special person.BestTracy :)
How sweet – a virtual scrapbook! It looks like it was a fun trip.Governor’s Bay is gorgeous even overcast. I’m sure your father enjoyed the outing.Amazing Aurora photos – in Maine our northern version isn’t so colorful.Those cloud sunrise photos were nice too – from the plane?
What a wonderful way to record old and new memories. Hope your father is recovering from his fall and pneumonia.
Your scrapbook of memories is poignant, Delwyn. I may just try your Mother's fudge cake! I hope your Father is comfortable and stabilized. It is a worry when parents get older and frail - your pondering on the idea of "rest home" makes me think.
What a lovely post!Such a lovely life...Aloha from WaikikiComfort Spiral
Hi Barrythank you for your kind thoughts todayHappy days
Hi BonnieNo other message today, but the one I received as touching....Happy days
Hi DanYes I agree family and the seasons of family are universal and trigger universal emotive responses - well I imagine that they are almost universal.I am happy to share with you DanHappy days
Oh TracyIt wasn't written as a tear jerker but I guess that as life passes through these phases some are sadder than others...and thank you for the warmth of your comments...we all are in our own ways....Happy days
Hello SarahYes but it wasn't as clear and large as I had hoped after the scan...never mind I think it is still legible.Yes sunrise photos arriving from Hawaii back to Sydney after our wedding holiday...Happy days
Hi dear friend MeriDo you do any journalling Meri like this - lots of glue and papers....I like to gather everything from travels and always find places for it to go later in the assemblage of photo albums or journals.It never fails to surprise me in the years after, how much information and how many memories can be triggered by a little snippet of paper like a receipt or a train ticket.Happy days
Hi BarbI love where I live and the life we have carved out for ourselves here in Au but my heart still claims NZ as my roots and my beginnings.I have a mixture of feelings that arise when I return to my birth town, lots of nostalgia but also much gratitude for the courage we had to leave the country so long ago and begin afresh in a foreign country which has provided us with a life of blessings and richness.I appreciate your kind words BarbHappy days

Well done Delwyn, I particulary like those cards, I think you do them so very well - it's almost like another language isn't it.
