You are missing an early-morning snowfall in Rockland that closed all the schools. Sadly, Tara is not so fortunate in Bergen and she’s already well into her school day. I just canceled a precious gyno appointment with my new doctor for the 3rd time. My last appointment was ironically scheduled for the day of your funeral and yes, she’s so sought after that today was her first open appointment, but I am seeing a nurse practitioner next week in her office. I’m wondering how you would feel about that. I can’t wait until May.
Of course I’m happy for an indoor morning with another cup of coffee, more political conversation about the Clinton-Sanders debate last night- loved it!!!! and a roaring fire in its place. This would atmosphere would not hold you for long but it seems that even here, we will be freed by lunchtime and I have a date scheduled so no worries, I’m not going to hibernate, in fact, I might be joining my family for dinner tonight in Ellenville.
It was good to have Ami around this week and hopefully he won’t have any trouble getting out later today. Here to take care of his businesses in Hoboken and catch up on prepping the house for sale and just available for more direct conversation. Yes, I look at him and see you. We share you, T., just what you would want.
As for those blocks of time I need to fill, good thing I live near lots of movie theaters because yesterday afternoon I needed to get out and a movie at the mall- Creed, did the trick! Probably not a good one for you, but I do have a soft spot in my heart for Rocky Balboa and I wanted to see Stalone’s performance that could win him an Oscar. He was good in the fatherly, manger role and the young Creed had an honest heart and a great body and I had a good cry glancing over at your empty seat, when at the very end of the film they walked up the steps of the Phily art museum, made historic in the first Rocky film. I remembered our walk up the stairs when the challenge of the stairs was felt by both of us equally. My tears were sweet and sweet is good.
There’s something still so magical about the darkness of a theater and the size of the screen that envelopes me into another reality. And now the comfort of the new lazy-boy chairs, the feel of a screening room. I was one of 4 for the performance.
Miss you on this snow day Tuv R,
