  1. Raivenne, I don’t think you want to shake that memory. How beautiful. It really is amazing how the mind works and what small things can trigger wonderful memories.

    • You may be right about not wanting to shake the memory, Arjeha. Still I can’t help wishing I could deal with the sweet, without the bitter. Thank you.

  2. Such a powerful memory! I like to think it was his breath on your palm. So glad you felt this connection via a golden leaf on the palm of your hand.

  3. Wowza. I thought for a moment that I was reading Fifty Shades! Whew.

    As I kept reading, though, I really felt the tenderness in your memory. I feel how much you miss him, I really do. I feel, for a moment, how much you LONG for him again.

    Beautiful. Really beautiful. The ending line will stay with me… the taste of Black label on his lips.

  4. Such a perfect string of words, Raivenne! You capture the memory and the present moment in such beautiful prose! I am reminded of a quote by Tom Stoppard: “Words are sacred. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones, in the right order, you can nudge the world a little”. I think your blog post does just that 🙂
