I’m looking back over the past twelve months for this week’s Six Word Saturday. I cannot believe how fast the time has flown by. As well as having to put up with the ridiculousness of the pandemic for a second year, I lost Mum in December 2020 and then my Brother in July 2021.

The passing of my two remaining close family members, in an odd way, seemed to have helped me to handle both of them, I can’t dwell on one without thinking of the other.

I’ve had ups and downs, felt I had nobody to turn to – although my extended family, aunts, uncles and cousins – have been there to pick me up, look after me, and push me forward.

I’ve found, however, that not everyone is as helpful, truthful and reliable as one would hope in this type of situation. Certain ‘professional’ bodies seem to go out of their way to make times even more difficult, by demanding things without replying to letters asking for clarification. That said, these people are in the minority and I have a strong belief in karma, so they’ll be feeling the returned force of their actions very soon, I would guess. No, most people have been fantastic, some even going as far as to move mountains for me. These are the people that keep the Light shining in the world.

I still find myself slipping backwards from time to time. I’m moving forward, getting on with things and then suddenly, out of the blue, I will stop. Think. Remember.

I speak to my Mum, Dad and Brother often, using a clear quartz pendulum with ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions… it isn’t the same as picking up the telephone, but it’s comforting to know that I can still communicate in some way with them. And they visit me often in my dreams, which is fabulous.

As I’ve said, I am moving forward. I have to, and my family wouldn’t want it any other way. I’m slowly returning to blogging more frequently, although in the short term I’ll be relying on old posts, some being re-written and others posted as they were – although I may create new artwork for them.

My future is Light. I can see that. The pandemic will fizzle out before we know it, and we can all get back to normal life.

Another six words, this time forward looking:

Move mountains for a new beginning.

    1. Thanks, VK. Keep on keeping on! 🙂
      It hasn’t been the best of times, but onwards and upwards! My pendulum is always ready for when I need it.


  2. A tough year for you, Tom, and I’m sorry for that. Keep following the light. I’m not sure I know what’s normal any more, and none of us know what the future holds, but I know we have to look forward. Every day is a new day, full of possibilities! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Chris… and you’re right. Every new day is full of any possibility, any new opportunity. We just have to keep looking forward to seeing and then grasping them!
