Tuvia was lazer-focused on moving the porch furniture into their spring/summers places yesterday. I was grateful but not quite ready to celebrate season with dinner outdoors.
But this morning when I was on my own and getting set for my guitar lesson I couldn’t help but stop dead in my routine tracks to add the Circle of Life candle to the table as an annual ritual and then catch the morning light for the first photo of porch summer. By now, in this period of mourning your loss I remembered a photo where you sat in the exact chair on the right, enjoying my Nyack space.
So I searched my digital photo libraries, my external backup for that pic and so far, nothing. But you know that I won’t give up yet and even though there’s a placeholder in this post, I will be happy to add an older one from times when we could talk together without a thought that our opportunities were numbered.
I can’t help but think about those close to me who could be gone before me. I keep living in the present with thoughts of an endless tomorrow… that’s the best way to live, right?
I am so happy that my conversations with you are inspiring Andy to get his feelings down too. It was good to talk with him and know that your resting space is good for him too.
LATE BREAKING NEWS: I DON’T GIVE UP and now at 8 PM I can move on 🙂
