MEMORY OF LOVE – PART 3

The feelings brought up by this were familiar ones. I was never religious the way my mother wanted me to be and I felt badly that I disappointed her. The fact that she was gone didn’t change that.
Miriam held my hands and looked into my teary eyes and told me, “Judy, you were there for your mom while she was alive. Everyone at the nursing home was amazed by your love and devotion. Did you know they still remember you and always ask me how you are doing?” Continue reading

I CAN’T TELL YOU

At my last hypnotherapy session, I opened up to talk about the guilt I’ve carried for many years over disappointing my mother because I wasn’t an observant Jew like she was. Continue reading

I am a passionate songwriter. I love expressing myself with words, and writing about my life has healed so much of my pain. For some reason, by sharing my intimate feelings I feel connected to other people. I am never lonely anymore. Continue reading

LOVE WILL GUIDE MY WAY

I knew this was your one-year anniversary and meant to write to you sooner. You made it through one year and that is a huge achievement. Each minute farther away from the amputation of your soul may be slow, torturous and imperceptible – but it is farther along. You will get there. You will always miss your son, but life won’t be filled with torture. Don’t give up hope. Continue reading

MEMORY OF LOVE-PART 1

I drove home after recording my song. As I drove home, I listened to my song and cried.

OPENING UP – PART 1

Do I consider myself a musician? Like tennis, I love music, but I don’t believe I could ever approach a professional level. It takes significant time and practice to be a professional at anything! I have hardly sung or played my guitar for over thirty years. I have no idea whether people will embrace my music. I love sharing it, even though my recordings are imperfect. Although it is painful for me to accept that, I’m at a point in my life where I’ve opened up completely. This is part of my journey. Continue reading
