Memorial Day (9-4-17)#2 Y3

Morning T,

Perfect weather today to celebrate the end of summer and the start of fall.  Yes, I have the energy  for something new.  Tomorrow I’ll be sitting in a classroom as a student without my computer.  Yesterday I pulled out a fresh notebook for sketching? and writing from images.  I’m taking a risk… sketching? I’m trying on the Learning Collaborative to see if it’s a good fit for me.  Most classes are filled so I just grabbed at a new way to create stories.  Why not?  Of course, I did balance out this risk with  a class focused on Joyce’s Ulysses, a challenge that’s more comforting. I’ll keep you posted.

Now where am I as begin a 3rd year without you?

I just finished reading the letters I wrote to you for the last two Labor Days and then flipped through images and posts of our memories on Labor Day.  My breathing grew short and I had to stop.  Just too much joy to absorb but it’s good that  the sun is streaming in now for balance.

So the immediate challenge:  make the most of Labor Day 2017!

Miss you Tuvia,

Bonnie S.
