Edwina was her name…well, not really, not her real name, but Edwina nonetheless

She was always on the run, always on a spree, flying back and forth; just ask…she’s here

Showing off her talent, pretending to be free, but trapped by her own challenges, locked inside indeed

Mademoiselle Edwina, would you like some wine? Looking good, Miss Edwina! nice to see you and welcome back…

As time goes by Edwina, looking to be real, eager to be noticed, tried out different things

Bendy one Edwina, funny one Edwina, pretty one Edwina, smarty pants Edwina, reliable Edwina…sad inside Edwina

Why you cry, Menina Edwina?  Need more time to freshen up? Put yourself together, Edwina! You can’t afford to be the weak vulnerable one.

Who is judging if not herself? Her own reflection fading out…unrecognizable threatening shadows firing back from her almond watery eyes…

Don’t be so tough on you Edwina, open the lock and spread your mind.  You have the key right in your hands, the golden passport, the non-stop pass …just loosen up, shake it off, open up and say ENOUGH!

So close yet so far, it sounds so easy, it scares so much. To Edwina the good one, was given the chance to step forward, for no good reason, no question marks, no hidden agenda or hard feelings… can this be right?

And then Edwina, being Edwina, pondered and wondered way too much.  Over thinking is her thing, a nasty habit if you will.  The key is yours, darling, it always has and it will always be. Don’t forget: is in your hands, not even hidden, it is right here.

Right …in… my… fragile… melting… hands. 

Thank you for being here... thanks for your emails (especially you, Becky)... I am back!!!!


  1. welcome back...smiles...over thinking will def catch you in a bind...and perhaps she will not be as tough on herself this time around...smiles.

  2. OJ--So glad you're back. You--and Katie Gates--are two blog friends I've missed for a while.

    Hopefully it will all be uphill (as in feeling up) from now on...

  3. Olga, you're back!! YAY! Your Edwina story is just beautiful. You've definitely not lost your writing talent. And how sweet of you to mention me. You're a great friend. Welcome Back to your Blog Home!! Hugs....

  4. Olga, how I've missed you, wondered about you. I am soooooo glad you're back. Yeah. Really, my heart is tickling me right now.

    Love your story. Glad Edwina seems to have rediscovered her true spirit.

  5. Amiguita, I didn't realize you wrote this, as excited as I was about Ryan's! I don't think Edwina was trying to be bendy, pretty, funny, reliable....I know she IS that and much, much more and I will always be here to remind her of that when she needs it :-)
