Riding The Harley

27 years ago my youngest son Toby entered this world. 2 years ago today Tod Norman, my partner for 35 years left this world. Two auspicious significant moments in my life.

Today we will celebrate Toby’s birthday with his brothers and remember their father.

It has been a week of remembering. June is a tough month.

I have learnt a lot about myself since Tod died. Some stuff is not flattering. And a shame that it could not have been learnt earlier. Hindsight is a waste what I needed was foresight.

No words today but enjoy this video. Tod loved his Harley and it was the only time that I think he felt truly free.

The password for the video is todnorman

  2. I confess I cried as I viewed the video. Then I thought, although much, much too short, his was a good life — a wonderful wife, three boisterous brats, and a notable professional life. Not always rosy, but certainly never dull.

    Roma, I tried to reach you by phone to say I was thinking of you all, and to wish Toby a happy birthday. It’s hard to believe it’s a year since I sat in your gorgeous garden. And what a year. Let’s all take care of ourselves until the bad virus goes away and we can see one another again. Love, Judy


  3. What a wonderful video, Roma, and what fantastic photos and memories. Sorry I didn’t see this in time to comment yesterday. My heart goes out to you and your lovely boys. Life has been very tough, but you have handled it so well. Please pass on belated birthday wishes to Toby. All will be well. And when it’s a bit better, we’ll meet again. Meanwhile, sending you love. Doireann
