Another week comes to and end, and there is no line on the horizon.
“No Line on the Horizon” – a line borrowed from U2, you might also feel fuliginous on this Friday if you’ve been smothered in fog all week.
I refer to it as fog, but it has been reported as smoke from fires. Luckily, not too close to where I am.
Nevertheless, whether it be fog or smoke, I quite like the view when looking out on the water and the line delineating the ocean from the sky can’t be seen.
Not to make light of the somber circumstances many people are facing, but I do try to stay positive, no matter how dreich and dreary a situation might be.
Working on new features and highlights while focussing on a new theme – I sunk into somberness tenebrifically this week, and I think it’s time for me to take a serious dance break to U2’s No Line on the Horizon.
Follow Cadence through this tenebrific journey and be enlightened while exploring the theme of somberness:
Catch all features highlighting the theme of somberness – there’s a tenebrific word, a tenebrous drawing, and much more dark matter to peruse through!
Although my father passed away more than two decades ago, I recall how difficult it was to get through the first Father’s Day after his passing. But with every year that’s gone by, I’ve come to appreciate and love him more.
Very much aware of how everyone’s lives differ and how each person grieves differently, I hope it brings some small comfort to some in knowing that, for me, the love and the memories my father and I shared, has only grown stronger.
When you passed away I was far away At the time I was told Irises meant to remember A symbol of remembrance Purple flowering irises I sent to be with you To rest by your side
When you passed away I was far away I wasn’t there to see you off Instead of I by your side Irises were laid To let passersby know I’d always remember I’d never forget you
Then now and forever You are my only iris Then now and forever I love and remember you Then now and forever

Although not designated as synonyms for one another, this month’s featured word and theme (truth & reality) could very well be twins.
