Letters to Tuvia #59: Life in Extremes (10-24-15)

Morning T,

Another day of Fall sunshine,  another success at the gym-3o minutes on the stair master, another pitstop at your Shoprite for coffee on sale.

Morning conversations with James, Adi and Ami.

Lunch at Cosimos with Lynn and Agita- my trio of widows catching up over salad and Prosecco.

Afternoon walking solo in Ridgewood.

Friday night  dinner in Hoboken hosted by Ron who proudly experiments with chicken kabobs.

Leora shares her Halloween preview.

But back  in  my car, breaking the silence,  I sing through my tears- “Embraceable You”, with Laura   over and over again. until I’m back in our driveway.

And  inside a waiting house  I begin  a new video – Laura’s tune to our dance from our first public celebration, when we were just  beginning together.

Today, like every day since you left us, your layer envelopes me and  everywhere I go, you go, my soul.

I want  it  just that way.

Love you,

Bonnie S.
