Letters to Tuvia#146 Waking Up (2-10-16)

Morning T,

Bad night for Hillary. Sad night for the Republicans with the Donald wining in the crowded field of their group. Trump offers red meat to the right wing and Bernie offers something new and exciting for young Dems.  A younger, more idealistic Bonnie would have been right with him.  Probably a younger Tuvia as well.

Call me a bit more realistic like many in my boomer group. I’m don’t feel more conservative but my ideals have taken a beating in the real world.  Obama, while I know you never broke with him, aligned himself with the “reformers” and turned away from progressive, public educators.  I’ve been burned (:))

but, on the positive side,

But here’s a bit of good personal news: my energy is returning.!!!!!

Yesterday Elyse felt it as I sat in her beauty  salon and watched her create a new hairdo for me.  We made eye contact through the mirror.  I smiled as she worked and we talked casually for the first time in five months.

The same thing happened with Bonnie as we sat together at dinner last night.

“You’re coming back, Bonnie. You’re smiling, you have energy. We’re talking!”

Yes, T, I’m coming back, even if I continue to ache for you, I’m coming back, sitting here my couch ready to refresh the look in here.  I’m in motion, almost bored and itchy for new projects.

Wishing we could talk about all this,

Miss you,

Bonnie S.
