Looks like a good day right, T?
Yes, it was.
Today was THE day and Sharon and I were able to walk at the river and kick off our summer 2016 with lunch at Strawberry Place- DONE, in my lemon shorts, white tank and my Birkenstocks. We earned our lunch and I did without my usual coffee- trying to get healthier. And after a bit of shopping, we made a date for our next meet-up and said our goodbyes.
All good. In minutes I was back in my hot car, sailing up the mountain, parking in a sweet spot, walking on the path with the river, covered now until fall and up the stairs, salivating for time back home before our celebration at La Fontana, for Hilda at 87.
Precious time on my porch…reading Being Mortal. No worries, my reading is diverse. I’m inside about 4 different books right now but the issues of how we deal with those on the way out, me caught. Thank God you left with your dignity and independence in tact and my memories of you always you.
I kept you young, and you kept me younger
It was a wonderful dinner honoring HIlda with Michael, Jane and Jo,. my Rockland family… I fit comfortably in their circle, grateful to HIlda still- my first trusted friend in our PRHS English Department. Early morning coffee at Aunt Molly’s. She made my transition to life from the Ville, to life here so much smoother and easier.
After a birthday dessert, cappuchino and Happy Birthday to You.... We said our goodbyes in La Fontana’s back parking lot and once again, I shut myself into my car cacoon and headed back up the moutain almost in auto-pilot. Almost, but still carefully watching for the light in deer eyes on the sides of the road as I get closer to our entrance.
I’m out of the car, parking now in the back lot and walking up the paved trail. I am in my buidling and gingerly walking up the stairs. I am opening my door and now, in the evening darkness, a wall of silnece hits me hard because now, at the end of this day with so much to talk about, to share with you, I want to talk with you, I want to touch you, I want you to reciprocate. I will always want you, Tuv. R. It’s 5 years for Lynn and she still wants Barry.
. But there’s one more thing… I can’t share the speficis yet but it looks like Christine and I have our first client for a Tell It Digital video. How about that!????
So, now I’m shutting down and catching up on the day in politics. What a mess!
