You missed another great fall day yesterday, but I took advantage of it for both of us. I was out of the house most of the day connecting and looking for connections.
Up early and on the move I was on the road and headed to meet Andrea for our first meet-up, collaborating as we make sense of the work we’ve done together over the last 5 years at Highland Falls. It was easy sitting with her in her new digs, watching her deal with the day-to-day issues of elementary principal and them coming back to our work together. It was easy to move in and out and keep you close. What a good friend! A great start to the day.
As we ended, I was off to meet with Sandie to catch up and focus totally on where I am in this grieving process. It was an easy, comfortable conversation and yes, it feels like I’m doing the right things to adjust to this new chapter in my life. My sessions with Sandie have been very productive, T. Do you remember your conversations with her? She does. 🙂
And then the last leg of the day- figure out what cords I needed to move your interview tapes from the camera to my computer. I got the first new cord at Bergen Camera but I didn’t have the right connector for my computer so, back on the road and off to Apple. Hank, my go-to guy, raced around the store searching for the extra pieces I needed, and he almost had it, but no prize yet. I ordered a new one online. Best Buy will deliver by Monday and even though I was disappointed that I couldn’t yet return to you, I can be patient when I have to be. Hank is ready to keep helping if I need him.
Back at the house, I got to catch up with Ami, who is feeling a bit better about what he needs for his business and feeling good that I was feeling better. But then the silence caught me and I couldn’t avoid your absence. I didn’t want to.
There’s a lot of unfilled space without you and your big personality.
Miss you always,
