Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

I do look forward to more about Merlin … and all of you mythical magical ballads. All myth is based in history. The magic is needed to make history real.
Yes the Tale of Arthur and Merlin or Morte De Arthur is something I grew up with , I believe there is truth somewhere in all myths!!
Willow, I am loving your readings! You’re so clever – not even I know how to do that. That’s fantastic.
And as ever, great writing 🙂
Thanks Noeleen I am not at my laptop right now but I shall endeavour to send you an email telling you about sound cloud and how to use it. I am in bed using Google my phone 😉 xx hugs to you both xx
You do love to have us coming back for more, don’t you.
Yes hopefully that’s the idea 😉 xx
There is a photograph from my wedding, of my husband and I pretending to sign the register. I’m grinning like an idiot in that picture, because my husband had – under his breath – called me “Dollop Head”. Both of us love this show and that was one of the best insults from Merlin ever! 😀
Yes it was was wasn’t it. I remember that photo you both look so happy Xx
This is very well written, Willow dear. Enjoyed it immensely.
Peace and luv,
Thank you Eric glad you liked 😉
My favourite Character Sweet Willow, Merlin, the wise and also the brave Wizard. with his own crosses to bear. I’ve read Mary Stewarts The Crystal Cave trilogy. and fell in love with his story. Wonderfully woven poem my friend. hugs aplenty xPenx
Merlin is pivotal to the whole story, he is magical and wise and without him there would be not story!
Beautifully written. These are fascinating tales. Take care.
I am so glad that you are enjoying the story !! 😉
Cool Willow. (came here when you reommended it for another post) I enjoyed this a lot. Thank you.
Well Paul you are welcome .
I watched Merlin for quite some time but I always was a little annoyed that Arthur was such a spoilt brat. But well… there is this thing called creative freedom 🙂
Yes I did rather like it !
