Yes, I'm here, still coughing so much and wishing my friend pneumonia would leave but it is on his terms not mine. Returned to work last Thursday and Friday then spent the weekend in the house coughing and resting. My lungs are trying to clear but it is a slow process. Not sleeping due to coughing is wearing and I may work 1/2 day today in order to get more rest. It has been healing in a way to go in and organize my desk and the 100's of e-mails, as well as catch up on all the little things needing to be done. Relieved my mind. There is an exhaustion with this plague that I have never known. Gravity at work, pulling me down most insistently.
LM had a birthday Sunday and we had a quiet celebration here with just "us." We ordered two 2 lb cooked lobsters from the fish market next door and they were scrumptious. A most lovely birthday celebration.
Mourning, Peter Seeger this morning and celebrating the impact he had on so many lives and the world. May we all go forth and set the fine examples he gave us to follow. His music is playing softly as I type. I heard a wonderful interview with his grandson this morning, and he seems to have Pete's voice. What we need more of in this world. Pete changed my life in so many ways, not mention the joy in his songs and voice. He caused us all to sing his refrains.
Love to all......
