Letters to Tuvia #10: September 3, 2015

Hi T,

Sorry I missed last night’s  letter to you  but I was with Jane and Michael for dinner and deep conversation and I tried a bit of a sleeping pill.  Big mistake, just didn’t work for me and I woke up in a morning haze, not me.

I am out every day trying to return to life.  My nights are disturbed so I come into each morning without much energy. Certainly not enough for serious exercise.  But I was out with Sharon on Monday for a slow, easy walk and took another one today around Nyack before I met up with Bonnie and Julia at the Arte Cafe.  Yes, we were able to sit outside but it did get really hot as we said goodbye.

I just have to remember that it was just last week that  we said goodbye to you.  Just a week.

So my first week without you was filled with friends on Facebook, in cards, on the phone, in person.

T, we are/were rich in friends.

I am in the new chair now and I’ll probably be here for the rest of the evening.

You are everywhere and nowhere.

I have my Israeli connection at 2AM, I have texting with Tara and my Bonnie team… but I have a new silence in this house and back at my apartment- I was there today- we are everywhere.

I am scheduled for Labor Day in Ellenville, a closet cleaning with Dana in my place on Tuesday and a therapy appointment with someone we both know and like a lot on Wednesday, and a meeting with Maris on Friday to make sense of our necessary trip cancellations.  Yes, I’m keeping our March trip with J and M.

So my love, I could write so much more but my eyes are tearing and my energy is almost at an end for today.

Love you always,

Bonnie S

And tonight, I’m going to try Julia’s cool gift

  1. Sweet dreams, dear friend. I use eye pillows when I’m sleep challenged. If you don’t care for aromatherapy, I highly recommend the Bucky eye shades. They’re soft and they invite me into deep sleep. I pull them on sigh deeply, and drift away. So hard to lose a loved one, I think of you often and hope you’ll be comforted through the challenges ahead. So glad that you have many dear friends.
