Letters to Tuvia #3: Dusting Off the Cobwebs 2-23-18


My fingers feel uncomfortable on the keyboard. It’s hard to believe that I wrote every day, sometimes twice a day to you for almost two. years and now half way through year 3, I don’t remember the last time I wrote a letter. I haven’t been using writing to make sense of life without you.

What have I been using for this  chapter of this life?

I pause.  I can’t answer that question.  How have I been reflecting, processing my life?  Sitting a lot on my couch.  Filling up on news- MSNBC, NY Times on my iPad, Facebook feed…It’s been such a hard year to be hopeful about the future, but we continue…

I really don’t know where to begin.  Year 3…How is it different?

  1. The ground beneath me is solid!
  2. I am grateful for our 20 years of love.
  3. I have found new things to learn.
  4. Friends have moved out of my life.
  5.  Friends have moved into my life.
  6. We speak in the silence.
  7. My  guitar muscle is getting stronger.
  8. I am getting better at turning off the TV and picking up my iPad for reading.
  9. My apartment is filled in new lights, new art and some pottery of my creation.
  10. I see some light in my challenge with Hebrew… a tiny light…

It’s been good to be back…

Thank you for your love. Its power carries me through the dreary days of winter,

Bonnie S.
