Great words Del, enough so that they affected another's relationship with their dad. That is just awesome.

Your post made me think of one of my favorite songs. It is by Jude Cole, titled "Speed of Life". It is definitely worth a download :) The lyrics are:

Like ghosts on open windows
The curtains rise and fall
The past is a foreign country
At the dark end of the hall
And the morning is an offering
To the shelter of the day
But the violent come and they bury it away

Time goes by at the speed of life
Slower than a slow dance on a hot summer night
Faster than the skin breaks on the edge of a knife
And we just go on at the speed of life

Like questions begging answers
The stars appear at night
What's it mean to love somebody
What's it mean to be alive?

I heard a little girl laughing
At her first sight of snow
Saw an old man dying
In a room he didn't know

While the world turns through the ages
It's a most peculiar ride
Holding on to one another
Moving at the speed of life

We just go on at the speed of life
A family on the midway in the carnival lights
Moving in a circle through the sounds and the sights
And it all goes by at the speed of life

Time goes by at the speed of life
Slower than a slow dance on a hot summer night
Faster than the skin breaks on the edge of a knife
And we just go on and on at the speed of life
Moving at the speed of life, speed of life
On and on and on and on
On and on and on and on

Chris, I have no problem with that. :hail That's awesome, I think it's wonderful.

It sounds like you have some family members that have wanted to hear from you for some time but like many, everyone's afraid to take the first step. Congratulations on that first step. Keep moving forward with it. :cheers

You know children are amazing. Most of what they do from birth through three years is completely by doing. No one teaches them how to cry or walk, how to babel those first words, how to take a stance without support before dropping to the floor on the padded diaper, how to laugh, how to love.

They do these things perhaps unconsciously but with diligence and persistence. Eventually, they learn emotions with these activities. They take their first steps completely on blind faith. Up and about, no one ever showed them, it's built into their chemistry. We as adults IMHO could learn from children.

Duke the lyrics sounds great. I'll have to download it from somewhere and listen to it.

Thanks again guys for your comments.
