Today in military history: June 25, 1950 was the start of the Korean War. According to the Pentagon, nearly 37,000 Americans lost their lives during this war. Today we remember the brave men and women that fought for our country during this war.

“Nossa mãe nunca disse: ‘você está certa por chorar pedindo atenção, já que eu não me sinto capaz de dar tanto quanto você está genuinamente precisando.’ Não. Nossa mãe disse: ‘ Você requer muita atenção.’ Ou, então: ‘Você é muito manhoso.’ É verdade? Não. É a opinião subjetiva de nossa mãe, sustentada pelo seu próprio desamor, com buracos emocionais e suas necessidades infantis e ainda não preenchidas. Mas, se nossa mãe está historicamente necessitada, como poderia nos preencher? Compreendendo-nos. Tornando consciente nossa realidade emocional passada e decidindo se sustentar no olhar ampliado de todo o cenário do qual faz parte. Isso não aconteceu porque nossa mãe passou a vida trabalhando para nos alimentar. Muito bem. Então ela nos delegou essa responsabilidade.”
O ato de biografar-se é um olhar para si pela perspectiva dos diversos personagens que estão ali no drama da sua vida. Olhar para a própria vida como uma peça de teatro construída por diversos personagens. O que está por trás do dito? Qual a verdade do não-dito? Como lembrar daquilo que não sei? Como vivo aquilo que nem vivi? Quanto a história constrói o discurso materno? Do drama ao trauma? Do trauma ao transcendência? A mãe é sempre um portal de integração do feminino. Enquanto o feminino serpenteia o masculino pede passagem. Outra força: o pai. O masculino se anuncia. Não há vida sem a integração entre o feminino e masculino.

104th Ludlow Memorial Service

The Ludlow Memorial is located west of Exit 27 off I-25.
Possibly the rarest jewel I have ever handled ! Memorial ring for Mary Prowse who died 1757 . Made of white quill, her own hair woven in to make the lettering of her name and death date . Being a white ring we can be sure is he was unmarried. Probably a child . Memorial rings were usually made of gold and consequently many survive. I have only seen one other quill and hair ring (in black ) brought to me on the Roadshow . there must have been many made but they are so fragile that only a handful have survived. Who was dear Mary Prowse ? How I would love to know ! Perhaps this and a tombstone in the country is the only memory of her ? Hair jewellery was especially important in an age before photography as there was a terror of failing to remember the faces of the dead . This ring is light as air. Like whisper from the past in the palm of your hand. “We are such stuff as dreams are made on and our little life is rounded with a sleep “

This morning I had to take Oswald to the vets to be put to sleep. He started to have seizures and keeping him here would have been selfish.
Dearest Ozzy, I can’t quite believe that you are gone. We’ve been through a lot these last 2 years and I know I couldn’t have have made it through without you, you have always been my light in the dark. You were so cute and cheeky that I just had to share you with the internet! And because of this I’ve met so many great people and animals. I’m going to miss everything about you but I’m trying to be positive because I know that’s what you would want. You were truly one of a kind and I’m so thankful that you were mine ❤️
