Tuesday's Treasures

copyright Barbara Di Lella 2002  "Hymie"
It was a year ago today that my Dad, 
my dear friend, 
There is not much
I can say here
other than I learned quite a lot from him
and I miss him terribly.

The work I do has seen me through many crises over the years. This past year was no exception. I pushed myself to do things I might not have done had the circumstances been different; trying to find myself without him.

For the first time ever, 
I saw a robin in February.
 In Canada they signify the beginning of Spring: 
a  new beginning... 


  1. i can really relate to what you are saying here
    and yes it seems spring is arriving even though winter
    hardly made an appearance

  2. That is such a lovely portrait of your dad Barbara.
