This one I think speaks for so many, Ann. Most of course don’t have your perspective. I am having to negotiate with the same things, the feelings that it’s not just a few month’s wait but far more. LIving in this house without All. My. Things. Not knowing how my world family will fare. So one of my responses is to continue to focus on what is right and good in my life. That yesterday my new neighbor, who replaced That Asshole Jerry, announced her presence at my house with a loud scraping sound. She was returning the favor of shoveling the snow off my driveway after I’d put in yeoman’s working shoveling the snow off hers two days ago. Such things make life here a lot better. If nothing else. Noticing the Smallest Things is a perfect lesson in grace. I desperately want to plan my next trip. Can’t. Desperately want to go hike stairs. Can’t. So I am being forced to learn different kinds of technology (which I need and should have done years ago) finish my website (same)….yah. The Goddess has laid so many things at my feet instead of what I wanted or expected. They are what I need. And for whatever future may come, probably perfect. If I get to walk into that future. Love you, Ann. Lovely piece.
