Breathing in the moments of yesterday.


Little B 0132

When I created this scene I was thinking of my father as today is the anniversary of his passing.  The orange trees created by Little Branch for this round of Shiny Shabby remind me of the time he took us out to an orange grove with him.  I vaguely remember it now.  Every so often when he was in between music gigs he would drive trucks or find some odd job.  One of his friends managed this grove and dad thought picking oranges would be easy.  I smile at the memory now and the retelling of this story even years later.  Dad was a hard worker, though this type of laborious work just wasn’t in him.  I don’t know how many of those tubs he filled before he hauled us all out of there, but it wasn’t long.

I live in Florida so seeing rows of orange trees is almost an every day thing as they line the roads I travel to and from work.  It’s nice to be able to share them here even on this anniversary of my dad’s passing as I honor his memory.

Happy Memorial Day.
