Another good night of sleep but somehow I don’t wake up refreshed. My early morning routine takes more energy without you here with me. I know you don’t want me to be suffering, but there’s no way around it. Our life together was just too good not to ache so. I’m just missing you.
Yesterday, a sunny Sunday began with a visit from Sophia, tackling your party crumbs and leaving the house smelling sweet again. Clean everywhere!
By 2:15 I was taking your seat at the aisle as I began this Fall movie season with a flick that held promise Pawn Sacrifice, a bio pic about Bobby Fischer. For us, movie theaters were romantic. In the darkness I/you would reach over and rest a hand on a leg, grab hand in hand. I could always find your shoulder when my head was heavy. Great director, great cast but from the start I was restless.
I’m not sure this would have been a winner for you either, even if the subject of chess was a favorite of yours. Just a few minutes of the movie focused on the world famous competition between Spassky and Fischer. Not really worth the 2 hours leading up to it.
Fischer was such a strange person that his characterization was so uncomfortable to watch, I found myself squirming in my chair and I had no one to share his insanity with. Actually there were only two other people in the theater and one snored through it from start to finish.
So the first movie on a fall Sunday in October was a bust! Don’t worry, it won’t hold me back from returning for the next one.
Dinner with Tara and Scott and Ben offered a great contrast. Drinking Prosecco, dipping into a large and lovely pot of beef stew, sharing stimulating conversation kept me smiling and engaged as they continue to open the door and share their lives with me.
Back home and exhausted the Lazboy was all mine as the Sunday night TV season kicked off with new episodes of Homeland, The Affair, The Good Wife and Madame Secretary. I was way too tired to move through all four hours but they are waiting for me on DVR.
So Monday begins my love with a Hillary Town Hall on the Today show and then I’m off for my Monday guitar lesson. Good to have that back right?
Miss you deeply my love,
