As always, it has been too long. Let us return to the random CD prompt. Find a song, as randomly as you wish, and borrow its first line. After that, just take your tale wherever inspiration directs you to go.
September already. Goodness me.
Work at the bakery was back to pre-summer busyness this morning. We still had croissants and cinnamon buns left when I headed for home at noon. Like, lots of them.
This afternoon we went to Rattlesnake Canyon to celebrate one of Max's friend's birthday. I took Max for his first go kart ride which he was pretty excited about. Then we hung out in the arcade for a while, mostly just pretending to play video games. Although I did actually put money into one of the racing games (I pressed the gas and helped him steer).
Letting the Cables Sleep by Bush
You in the dark.
You in the pain.
That is how I remember you. I wish it were not so. I wish that other, happier memories would force their way through. But alas... alas.
The disease stole your light.
The disease destroyed your comfort.
I was powerless in the face of it all. I could only hold your hand and watch. I couldn't stop it. As desperately as I wanted to, I couldn't help you.
And, in the end, the disease took you away from me.
Now... I'm beginning to believe it has come for me.
