ON THE BACK BURNER

April 25

I have been working on an article for a local newspaper .In the article, I mention my Mother. This , of course, led to more memories, none of which had any relationship to what I was attempting to write . My Mother romanticized her life in Russia. She told me that she was asked to be in the Russian Ballet. I can't believe that. Then she told stories of how they had food to share when others didn't. That I can believe. I suppose that when life is hard,you need stories to make life easier. She and my Father were opposites . Some marriages work because the spouses compliment each other by their difference. I don't think that was true in their marriage. My Father idolized my Mother. I think that she was indifferent. That was too bad. Poor lady. Nothing made her happy. Moral of this tale. Be happy.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
