The 4th of July: Many years have passed since those summer days

‘Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You’ll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold ‘


While for most of my SL friends, who are in the USA, today..the 4th of July is a day of celebrations, festivities and fun, for me it brings me back to when I was a little Caity.

The 4th of July is my Mom’s birthday, we used to celebrate it while on holiday in Italy, on the camping at Lake Garda. We got to eat ice creams all day, the adults got drunk (well I realise now they didn’t get a flu, ahem…..) and all was good and cheerful. My Mom occasionally complained her birthday was never at home, but always on vacation.

She would have turned 70 today, alas…she was taken away in 2001, at the too young age of 56. I miss her.
I inherited her love for all flowers and colourful decorations, her brown eyes and her smile. And. I miss her so much.

Happy birthday Mama!
