Thanks Chef John and Princess.
It's good to be home again.
Today is the 1st day of fall and not my favorite season. I do love the colors but sad to see leaves fall making the trees look so barren. It's kind of like the death of summer. I know, kind of morbid, huh?
I'm in such a sad mood with all the horrible events in the Caribbean and Mexico. The human spirit is very strong and I know, in time, they will recover. We are constantly tested, aren't we?
It's a beautiful day here in Colorado and will focus on spending it outdoors. Have a blessed weekend everyone.
Glad to hear you had a good time with the sights and the conversations, Barzan. :-)
I just returned from my trip to Mackinac Island. I had such a great time. There were quite a few women on this bus tour (wasn't a fan of buses) who were also widowed. I had the opportunity to chat with them about their spouses, how long ago it happened and how they are dealing with the loss. We had the support of each other and I think it made such a difference. And - if you have the opportunity to visit Mackinac Island, I highly recommend it. What a beautiful place!
chef (John) So true so true.
Most days anymore, I tend to feel "balanced".
Having lived through the worst thing that will ever happen to me (and we ALL get 100 points on the Holmes-Rahe Stress Scale for being widowed), I tend to be somewhat foolhardy/fatalistic at times. Whenever someone says, "What's the worst that could happen?", I tend to respond, "Nothing! The worst thing that can ever happen has already happened to me."
Do you have times when something good happens, but you may also be concerned about something bad happening too?
This used to happen to me a lot during Years I and II, but the reality is that things just happen randomly. I do my best to keep myself at an even keel, and do my best not get too euphoric whenever something "good" happens, nor too depressed whenever something "bad" happens.
