It can be interpreted on two levels either with death or the breakdown of a marriage I deliberately penned it so people could interpret it in their own way:-) hugs Jan xx

Oh, this is lovely, Jan! You're right - great minds DO think alike (But then again, there aren't ALL that many poetic uses for a locket so maybe our minds aren't THAT great, we're just part of the common paradigm) Anyway, smarty pants, congrats on your win! xoxo

Photographs, the vital ink to memories. When they were happy, when they were well, when the joy of life coursed through their veins. Love endures in equal proportion to the pain. Kind regards Ian

Thanks Ian - I am so glad I went through photo's with my dad before he died - i was able to write notes on the back of them so the memories are not forgotten:-) hugs jan xx

Oh, you're really good with this! I think it is more powerful this way, the repetition about the picture tells all the angst. Hope to see among the top, Jan. hugs! ps. Gosh, I have to catch up on my reading! Be back later! hugs
