I’m so happy to be home and dry and warm after the long rainy ride back from NYC. The worst part of the return home was on Rt4 and when I finally reached our short cut on the backroads, I knew I was almost home free. Now, with the Nightly News in the background and a warm cup of coffee, I’m breathing calmly again.
But today you were missed by Rosie, in particular. She’s in the hospital, at the Cornel Medical Center, an institution even more impersonal than Lenox Hill, if that’s possible. Even though she has a single room with a view of the Hudson and Roosevelt Island, we saw into no one- not a doctor, not a nurse. Of course, if you were with us, you would not be sitting around chatting. In minutes you would know everything you would need to know. I sat politely with Dani and Assia and kept Rosie company. Proud of me? Having Assia and Dani there, and then as company for lunch made it so worth the round trip.
Not much else possible. I almost lost my umbrella more than once given the wind blowing against me. UGH! I hate it when you can’t enjoy a walk in NYC.
Zehava has been there to visit, Ami called, Pat, Dani’s old girlfriend continues to act as Rosie’s champion.
So, my love, today was my first day wearing your rings after their facelift. A snug fit, I can never forget them and of course, I don’t want to. Assia loved them, my Facebook feed gave their new look high marks. They help hold you close to me.
Big night tonight- another Republican debate, game #2 for the World Series. I’m remembering our first date during the World Series of 1996, remember? Yankees playing but of course you didn’t know that and didn’t care. I was thrilled that you didn’t care. I knew right there and then that we had a future together.
No TV allowed from 9-10. Ill be planning with my workshop team for our presentation at the NWP conference in November. It’s the first one without you by my side when the conference section ends and vacation time begins. Minneapolis, a city you were hoping to see with me will be experienced with Jackie and Diane and Christine and Tom and Jack and NWP buds. I’ll share pictures with you my love but it would have been better of course to have you by my side.
Miss you, miss you, miss you- love of my life.
