…what an odd word that is. it feels strange to say it and even stranger to understand all the implications associated with it. going to work this morning was a bit surreal and bitter-sweet. i took my dog max along and am happy i did. he was a great distraction for me and the folks …
today there was a celebration for my pending retirement, it was fabulous! the commentary was fun, we had a potluck that would have fed another 100 or so and the most eclectic mix of food…delicious. i was touched by the folks there and words spoken, it was far more enjoyable that i could have anticipated.
i’m waiting for the cure to happen. two days of homemade chicken soup, french bread and peanut butter cookies have not put a dent in my cold…damn if it’s not worse. now resorting to vick’s vapo rub, lots of fluids and good old aspirin….and hours of bed time. god i’m old today!
…oh unrequited desire. how is it that what you can’t have is often placed before you to tempt your heart and torment your soul.
crisp and cold this morning -6, offset with a glorious sunrise. i only had my canon powershot and could not get a decent photo facing the sun. i’m one of the very few on their way to work. the roads are sparse with cars and on the seabus, snowboarders outnumbers us working stiffs.
