The Scrapbook revisited: a reblog for the MLMM Sunday Confessionals

I am offering this as my contribution to the first Sunday Confessionals hosted by Oloriel for MLMM. Find out more here

I remember writing it and how I was feeling at the time. Reading it now, I don’t have children of my own, but somewhere there are foster kids that came into my care and I hope I made a difference to their lives, giving them support, encouragement and security when they needed it.
I have found my soul mate in Hubby, someone who loves me unconditionally for the person I am, not what is expected and cannot imagine my world without him in it. I am content with my life and even more so that I have someone to share it with.


I wrote this many years ago as an Exercise and entitled it “A Soul In Torment”.
We were all given the first line and had to make up the rest.
The thing is, I can’t recall any of the other circumstances, such as what was going on in my life, who I was with, or where I was when it all came about. I’m not even sure of the year, which is possibly 1974 as that was the year I attended a poetry course in Devon.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Wanted to leave you a reply on your original post, but could not find the comment box.
    Love that your poem reads like a gentle mantra, perhaps before bedtime or recited first thing in the morning before starting the day.
    Thank you very much once again for sharing

    • Hi Oloriel.
      comments close on posts older than 30 days on my blog as I was bombarded with spam and someone suggested this was a way to reduce, if not solve, it. I’m glad you liked it.
