Letters to Tuvia#226:Brought to Tears (5-13-16)


Morning T,

Just back from a workout session at the gym with Anthony and drinking my second cup of coffee, we will not be enjoying the sunshine of yesterday and maybe that will be better for me because the sunshine and this picture of you leveled me.   Just a flash memory of our everyday life and I was stopped dead in my tracks and as hard as I worked to keep me feet planted in the present, I couldn’t stay for too long.  I was on my couch, just to the left of the glass table that lives now in the garage, and I was there for most of the afternoon, reading, napping, thinking…

I wanted to work on my Tell It Digital promo but I couldn’t move to it.  Yes, I did get up and play guitar.  Yes,  I did that and somehow I felt closer to you as I work harder, stay focused longer…. but I came back here to you.

I sent Ami this picture and described my teary time and of course he understood, especially on Israel’s Day of Remembering/Day of Independence.

In the rain today as I drive up the Thurway for time with Christine and Jackie talking through Tell It Digital and then getting to a movie and dinner… I will enjoy healthy distractions.

Damn, this is hard!


MIss you,

Bonnie S.

  1. I marvel at the everyday moments you captured during your time together. Even as these photos undo you, they are tangible moments preserved to be revisited as needed. I need to take more pictures.

  2. So good to get moving, Bonnie, but after pouring your heart into the writing. You haven’t written much about the project recently (unless I missed it). Hope the meeting today went well.
