When I Can't Dream No More.

This is a pewter chess set.
I hide it because the last thing I want, is to lose the pieces.
It's a gorgeous set, very heavy and looks good
as a Christmas decoration.
People always play chess on New Years at my house.
The board is hidden in another box.
How convenient. lol
Sometimes you have to be tricky. lol
Once everything is together, an elegant game of chess war
could be played over a nice glass of brandy.
(but not on New Years)
The game would finish fast if you played me
since I don't know how to play.
If only wars were all so simple and painless.

I am very fond of these coasters as I don't have too many true Canadian things.
We always seem to collect foreign things from around the world.
I want to dream but when I can't....

I'll have you to remember.

Zuzana - That's what having a loved one means.
Having someone left behind to remember
