Letters to Tuvia#192 Last Day of March & the Challenge


Morning T,

Can you believe it,  yesterday was the first time in 9 years I forgot to compose a slice.


I thought about it in the morning, before I packed and left for New Platz.

I thought about it while I was sitting in Old Main conference room, interviewing perspective TCs for our next Institute

I thought about it as I was traveling on 44/45 over the mountain to Ellenville.

I thought about it while I ate dinner with my dad, Jeff and Martin.

I thought about it as I sat with Marla and Jeff catching up on the excellent production of The People vs OJ on TV.

And then I clicked onto the internet and got lost at the Wix site creating a website for my new venture, Tell It Digital.

And then I fell into a peaceful sleep and didn’t think about it until I woke up at 2am and realized that it was too late.

Oh well… good thing I didn’t miss today, the last day of the month.  Don’t worry my T, this isn’t the end of your letters, no way!   But this was one full month, wow!

My first week of March: at Excellence in Cancun- first time without you and the very best room complete with a second story pool/spa just for me.  Highs and Lows  but over all, a  good week as I think about it back here in the deep freeze that’s headed our way.

Back home- unpacking the wall unit, watching Clever remove it, leaving me with a white wall and upheaval. A week of illness and therapy weekend with a head cold. But I was throughout it all, more myself, eyes wider, makeup more often, even a some shopping at Chicos.

Finally… ending with a race to finish line with a new video.  Immersed! Back in my digital world, creating… visits to the Apple store.  Just a casual conversation with Christine on Sunday as we raced to a movie at the Burns and Tell It Digital came back to me…

Perfect timing T.  I need to fill empty spaces with something constructive.  Good time to get immersed.

A wonderful March- Slices/Letters and getting such wonderful support even when I didn’t comment as much as I should have or wanted to.

The month is ending but no worries, the letters to you will continue… always!

It was a great month to be in this community of writers.  9 Years!!!!

April… Passover… Ami and family arriving, Eliana’s 2nd B day… and so much more…

And you aren’t here to share it all with me…

Miss you T. Always,

Bonnie S.

  1. I think it’s a good thing you missed, busy, busy with new ideas and excited to get them moving, so understandable and delightful to hear, Bonnie. I don’t remember that picture of Tuvia between the suns, just perfect isn’t it? Your ‘sun’! Thanks for all the writing and sharing from your heart.

  2. March was such a busy month! And now there’s so much ahead in the month of April, plus your new digital project. You are becoming more yourself, bravo to you. I know the journey is painful and not one you ever wanted to travel. Hugs to you!

  3. I am cheering for you too. What a busy month, and you are smiling in your photos. Life moves on, and I am sure Tuvia would be proud of you for moving with it. I love reading these love letters, so don’t skip too often, okay? 🙂

  4. Another March conquest Bonnie. The next challenge pokes its head above the horizon and we embrace it with glee. As usual, its been fun to share the journey with you. Best wishes…
