Good Things

Thanks to everyone for the expressions of love and support.

It's been a tough couple of weeks, but we'll all be ok.

Some things that I've found, over the past few days, to be good balms for the pain of losing a friend:

-- Visiting my friends who have babies. Babies are just great. They're so cute and full of energy, and they remind you of how beautiful life is, and how much hope there is for the future.

-- Walking in the Park. Even though it's the dead of winter, you can see signs of life everywhere - green shoots on a tree, a small bud that almost escaped notice, even squirrel footprints.

-- Bad reality shows. Nothing like seeing the Real Housewives of wherever to help you gain perspective on how trivial so many problem s really are, and how little many people appreciate what they have every day. And resolve to be a better person in that regard.

-- Sitting in a quiet church. You can just feel the presence of..something. Who knows what it is? Intelligent minds may differ in their opinions.

-- A big cup of hot chocolate with lots of whipped cream. I love that sensation when it hits the roof of my mouth. The loveliest flavor in the world.

Life marches forward.



Glad to hear it. Akin to stopping to smell the roses.

I'm so sorry. It's been a few weeks since I read your blog...I'm so sorry about your friend.

I hope your life will continue to march forward with many many blessings.

How fun to walk in a NYNY park, summer or winter. Kelly and I are tentively planning a few days in your fair town.
