I first wanted to make a new image for this month’s prompt – Stairs – but then Master T reminded me that we do have some photos where stairs are featured, from back in August 2013 when mom was in South Africa and we had to house-sit. We saw it as a perfect opportunity to use her house for photos.
These stairs led to the first floor and there was another set of stairs that led to the attic, where Master T and I had some fun on several occasions and we even invited a friend over for some fun. And boy, did we have some fun.
Since Master T chose the title of this post, I wanted to look at the lyrics of the Led Zeppelin song and when I read it, part of it made me think of mom, even though she never was a fan of this music. There’s just something in these words…
And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
Note: I am sorry that I am yet again referencing to mom’s passing, but it’s still so very much part of my daily life, and my dreams, where she has appeared in several times since she died. Every time I see her, she’s smiling at me, as if she approves. It gives me peace.
