Letters to Tuvia#147 Floating over the Hudson…(2-11-16)

Morning T,

I’m here, waking up a bit later, breakfasting with MSNBC and missing you sitting across from me with your hard copy of the NY Times.  Hey, I’m not tearing up. Just realized that even if I do feel sad, really sad.

As much as I’d love to be in a conversation, maybe I’m getting used to the sounds around me: the wind playing in the flames, the chiming on the porch, Kelly O’Donnell updating us on Chris Christie’s exit from the Republican crowd (Yay).

Good conversations yesterday, moving myself to work projects.  Texts to Jack and Kristen and Tom to put our summer collaborations out into the world announcing HVWP  PD opportunities.  A dinner date with Andrea to plan for interviews with our Highland Falls team… A movie and dinner with Marie France and Don, Valentine’s Day with Tara and Scott.

I’m doing all the right things, right?

Then why am I starting to tear up because I feel so fragmented???

Come back,

Bonnie S.

  1. The changes. I hear your positive steps to adjustment through the midst of unwanted change. It’s like you at swimming your regular exercise but at times it feels like the English Channel instead of a swimming pool. You are getting stronger in the midst of it all. Hugs!

  2. Mary Helen said it so well, Bonnie, lots of work to get somewhere, and sometimes it may not seem as if you got anywhere. But I hear changes are happening, and that is good. We get so impatient with ourselves, don’t we? Glad you’ll have a nice Valentine’s Day with Tara and Scott, can get love & hugs there for that special day. And glad for you all about Christie. All the rest is still a mess, sad to say. Have a good Thursday!
