….runs in slightly out of breath…. settles in front of computer…. wee bit of brandy in a snifter (#$%@ the snifter, downs it in one gulp), a mug of tea, takes a deep breath, holds, exhales… and we begin!
Hello world! It’s me! I’m back for a moment. Life is happening outside the confines of my computer, and is keeping me preoccupied. Life has a way of sucker-punching us the stomach sometimes. Things went sideways back in November. They have remained on their side, but we are slowly getting used to living in a sideways world.
I am always encouraged, lifted, brightened by the love, support and caring of my family and friends. Especially my Mom, the very woman I write about who is having life happen to her right this minute. I don’t feel right broadcasting her news, but I do know she would be especially pleased if you kept her, us, in your thoughts, prayers, toasts, or while eating toast.
