Himself: No jobs at all. He kindly ran me on my errands. Got the kind of Kaiser he wanted. Panicked for a moment when he received a cancellation but that was for the other plan. All is well.
Herself: Tuesday had only one very long nap. Wednesday, feeling vastly better. Woke feeling quite good this Thursday morning. Ba moved to LA on the 24th of this month. That’s a 27 year hunk of my life gone. Today to the Poetry Workshop, and taking my ideas with me.
Reading: Another Cadell.
Sadness: Finding Mark Mariano Gomez’s obit in the UT today. He was a twenty year usher for the Padres and a special man. Another Padres loss will be the clown and my long term roommate J. Her breast cancer has returned, and she has decided to treat it holistically.
Balance: Knowing everything is done.
I’m grateful I remember what to do.
Lastly, I need to close down my acid free ephemera box….that actual real collection of paper cards, letters, and writings I feel I have to save. Silly me. I need to get a new box too. It will be numbered 45.
This coming year, I want to write journal entries with some form of richer content other than aches, pains, and volunteering. I’m reading May Sarton's “At Seventy” and can't get too far each time I pick it up....endlessness is not something I want to write even tho her endlessness was structured around her writing, her friends, and her wonderful garden. There has to be another way to live this.
I’m stepping into the New Year with a smile.
I've started two major projects, one is a chap book inspired by Ruthe. Regretfully, I'm cutting back on my blog notes though I will still be reading all my regular blogs. I too easily find myself here reading blogs hour after hour every morning until my mornings are gone. I just let myself flow into these wonderful worlds until time vanishes. Perhaps more free time will allow me more creativity. That’s my hope.
I’m much slower these days. The years I have left are not unlimited, and I am reminded of this. I’ve completed a few goals, and now I wish to make a few newer dreams mine too. If I have to trim to squeeze another completeness into my life, I will.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL !!!
