Letters to Tuvia#171 Limbo #sol16 (3-9-16)


What a glorious afternoon, T.  A perfect afternoon for a walk in Ridgewood and  coffee under an umbrella at an outdoor cafe.  So vivid in my mind.

At this very moment, after a full morning back at Highlands Falls Intermediate School, I’m  on my couch catching up on the MSNBC  political chatter. Funny, I missed this mindless chit-chat when I had the beach and the ocean to keep me engaged.  Sweet!

I’m back home, day #2 trying to find myself again, find my rhythm. At the moment, I’m missing you, my anchor. First time as I left Highland Falls and grabbed for my iPhone to call you, just to let you know I’d be home soon and then realized that that was pointless. The grieving continues…

But don’t worry, I maybe on my couch at this moment, but tomorrow, by 3:30, I’ll be packed again and headed up the Thruway to Route 17 and way beyond the Ellenville exit for a therapy weekend at Shalom Mountain.  Yes, I want to make sense of this grieving process I’m in.  I need to understand just what’s happening to me and Shalom offers something special.

I’m hoping there’s good internet up there so I can keep up with my slicing and commenting… I know, I’ve been terrible on commenting.  I will finish this slice and get to it.

Slicers, if you’re reading along with Tuvia, please help me out.  I’m working on a new digital piece- for Slicing 2016… Please send me your favorite place to write and a caption ASAP so I can get on with a new creative, therapeutic  challenge

This is where I LOVE to write…  or This is where I wish I could write… 

And Tuvia, feel free to send me something as well…

  1. I will be searching for that photo Bonnie. You are so smart to find help through this grieving process. I hope this weekend will give you some answers you are searching for.

  2. You are so good at looking after yourself, and you seem surrounded by people who are helping you out too. But I know the one you want there isn’t. I hope your therapy weekend helps.

  3. I just found your blog through the SOLSC this year, and am so moved by your letters to Tuvia. I lost my husband recently and have been doing something like what you are through Facebook, but also in my Slices this month. I hope to read all of yours to see how our experiences compare and what I can learn from you. Thank you.

  4. I hope the weekend is supportive for you bonnie. It sounds like a good way to think through things for you, away from so many memories. Best wishes. I’ve sent my picture! Thanks for creating such a nice thing.

  5. The weekend sounds like just the thing. I can’t imagine what you are going through while you grieve the loss of your beloved Tuvia, but you are so smart about doing what you need for you. Hugs to you.
