  2. My posts are preplanned so let’s see how to connect the prompt to the post…. A treasure lost? The time I could have spent studying a more helpful language for my last trip! Or the trip itself, at the time of the post, already slipping away, now lost to the mists of the past. http://aka-gringita.com/2023/01/04/december-16-at-sea-and-our-last-formal-night/

    1. So beautiful. Unfortunately, our bodies set the signals for how we feel every day. If it already starts bad in the morning – what to do?- A positive saying on the fridge, a good spot on the radio or a positive encounter with a person can help to save the day. Also this blog with always new topics and people who write about it. I have not lost a treasure, but found.

  7. I don’t think that the treasure we lost was Whitney Houston! She, on the contrary, has left us a good experience on how to improve music and the world of film. Her education has repaired many people with wavering faith. The real victims of the lost treasure are those looking for lost ornaments from the time of empires, the Second World War and the show on Blaze TV- Lost treasures of Oak Island, where 6 dead are counted in search of treasure on this island!

    1. Circa 2003 I fought with my younger brother over ownership of the TV remote for the last time ever. He would happily give it to me now. Heck he’d even buy me a TV.
    2. Circa 2004 I stole my sister’s favourite perfume for the last time ever. I still don’t need to buy one on my own because now she gifts me one every time we see each other.
    3. Circa 2012 and Circa 2016 I held my niece and nephew in my arms for the last time ever, back when they were babies. They are 13 and 10 now!
    4. Circa 2007 I drove around Delhi carefree with my best friend for the last time ever. My schedule is crazy packed when I visit India, my friend is the mother of 2 girls and I wouldn’t dare to drive in Delhi after my acquired German driving skills.
    5. Circa 2012 I gave a birthday card to my then boyfriend (now husband) for the last time ever. I may give a card to other people now and then but in our household we decided to stop this tradition long ago as we are wannabe minimalists striving to save paper and money.

  48. A Treasure that I Have Lost

    When my father, who lived in Tucson, died in 2016, there were three things I wanted from his estate: a bed-sized quilt I’d made for him, a lap quilt my youngest son had made for him, and a scrapbook of photos I’d made for him filled with pictures of him and my sons.

    I got two out of three.

    The quilt I’d made for my father arrived first. Years before, on a visit north, my father had gone into a fabric store with me on purpose. Maybe it’s a cliché but most men don’t follow women into fabric stores. My husband always sits in the car. I had a friend whose husband always sat in the car and sometimes napped while she bought material. But my father wasn’t a sit-in-the-car kind of guy. Once on an afternoon jaunt along Lake Superior, I stopped at a yarn shop, and my father came inside with me. He found something to like in that store–the owner’s dogs. While I perused the yarn, they chatted about their dogs.
