Beauty in our darkest days

CL GillmoreCL GillmoreCL GillmoreCL Gillmore

“Thinking about all the beauty that surrounds us even in our darkest days, our saddest moments.

All of us at one time or another will fall asleep in a familiar place, and wake up in an unfamiliar place. We feel afraid, feel alone, as we slowly realize we can never go back. Our life has changed forever and we must make the unfamiliar… familiar. We begin the long, slow process of change, of healing.

And one morning, we wake up, look out… and find the beauty is still there. We’ve brought it with us. Beauty in all things… nature, family, friendship, memories. Remembered beauty that gives us a glimpse of hope, of normalcy, of familiarity… and allows us to move forward once again.”   ~ C. L. Gillmore

Unseasonably mild weather

Excerpt from A FRIEND REQUEST, by C. L. Gillmore

The unseasonably, mild weather continued through late November. The crisp, cool, autumn temperatures swept away the lingering summer heat. Ridges of puffy, white clouds—stacked one on top of the other—looked like line dancers, stepping across the bright, blue sky. Cottony tufts adrift in a sea of blue, reflected on the lake’s surface, now sprinkled with orange and yellow falling leaves. Still and serene. Picture postcard perfect.

Muscatine with friends and family

A beautiful view, even in the rain. Enjoying my down time in Muscatine with friends and family. I’m looking forward to the book signing at Wine Nutz tomorrow night.

Working on my remarks and finding just the right passages I want to read. Thinking about the true meaning behind fairy tales and happy endings. There’s more to them than most people realize. Did you know that?

Listening to Eric Clapton and Friends: The Breeze, an appreciation to J J Cale.

Listening to rain splat

CL Gillmore

When I came back out, the rain had slowed some. I climbed in the truck and sat there for a few minutes, listening to rain splat against the windshield. I checked my cell… a text from Rose.

“Close your eyes… I’m there with you. My arms around you, my lips on yours. Listen for my voice… I love you, Jake. My heart remains with you, alwaA Friend Request  Frontcoverys. This weekend… a precious moment out of time.”

I turned my head slightly, pulled the shirt over my mouth, my nose… and breathed in. Her scent lingered on the linen fabric, on my skin. My body ached to hold her, to kiss her, to love her again.

Jesus.

I texted back.

“Yes, close. Can feel you, smell you, taste you. In my thoughts.”

I slipped the cell phone back in my jacket pocket, started the truck, and pulled back onto Highway 20. B. B. King and U2 rocked out to the bluesy, driving beat of “When Love Comes To Town” on the radio.

I cranked up the sound—drummed the beat on the steering wheel—and sped into the night.
