Catching up on some lost days. I missed a number of days and I don't want to miss my words. So this evening I am adding the word LOST. Now that can have the same meaning but many interpretations. I can be LOST in the car, in the woods, in a building. I can also be LOST in an activity, reading a book, in a conversation. I might have LOST my glasses, my keys, my mind. Funny....it doesn't mean forever, just temporarily misplaced. At least for me. I have often lots of the afore mentioned items. But LOST forever...now that is like death. To never see something or someone ever again. I am often LOST without my Mother or Grandparents. Not really having someone there to mentor you. Knowing that you can never again hear their voices or feel their touch. That is one of the most horrible feelings, but then I look around and I find in may things and people that they are never LOST...Just MIA. I look at my face and I see my mother. I speak words of wisdom or tell a story and I hear my grandparents. I might sometimes just be LOST in space. A feeling of not belonging, missing, doubting or sad. I sometimes struggle to pull up a memory that is LOST somewhere in one of those files in my brain. It is very much like on the computer...where exactly did I save that file?? I often find many of the items I have LOST by retracing my steps, retracing what I have said. When I am with an older person, I try hard to remember to give them time to search for what they might have thought they have LOST. Patience is something older people have for everyone....I think we should reciprocate. I hope you are not LOST here in my train of thoughts.
