Chapter 1

Ripley seeing reflections

 

“Look at the stars, see their beauty. And in that beauty, see yourself.”-Draya Mooney

The year is 2056 and at eighty-six years old, in a world whispering-nothing is the way it was, I, Ripley Smith Watson, stand closer to the end of my journey. At least it felt like time danced by faster these days. My husband passed the year I turned eighty. That point of my life, my journey had ended. Brightest of days had long since passed. Questions of where I would go at the end of my journey called life, were a constant these days. Would I have a legacy to leave behind for my family, my daughter Lindsey, and my grandchildren? Will I be just a memory for them? Did I teach them well enough? Was Dee right with her belief of transition? Was Lizzy right with the idea of heaven existing? I was never much of a believer in spiritualism or organized religion. Things were just as they were. I never questioned that matter. From years of working for my father at the hardware store and eventually the hardware store became my store, I saw life just as I did hardware. I called my belief Hardware-ism.

You need good tools to build a home or a happy life for that matter. Each tool has its job to help in creating each life and you build your own desired outcome. May it be a home, a child’s tree house and even a bridge to cross over a river.

I considered myself more of an atheist back in my younger days than I am now. Now, I teetered on the fences of belief, the fence I built with my tools…(Unedited version)

chasing butterfliesMagic inthe Power of Friendship

Chasing Butterflies in the Magical Garden, by Jorja DuPont Oliva is a narrative about life’s disappointments and losses, and about the power of friendship and love to heal. It is a unique and at times enchanting look at the friendship between two women that alternates between realism and a kind of fairytale/magical realism that some readers may have difficulty getting used to. This is not a plot filled with twists and turns and surprises – but it is a charming look at a small town in the south and about howa heartbroken young woman named Lizzie learns to recover her strength through connections with others and with the world around her.

Ms. Oliva’s writing style is deceptively simple but contains a great deal of wisdom, especially about the expectations placed upon young women and about the healing power of connection. You will not find in-depth…
