ON THE BACK BURNER

February 7

I have some heroes. They seem to be women, but a man would qualify. I just don't have them in my radar. The heroes for me are widows . I've mentioned them before. The ones I know have spunk. They don't sit home with the attitude that they have been victims. They get up and out. They do . At least my hero models are like this. I watch them . They show the way for those of us who will,unfortunately be them, some day. These heroines of mine ,in public,show such grace and strength. They accept what happened in their life, they take care, independently ,of their lives and they go about living and sharing. They don't shroud themselves in black, with thoughts or actions. I see these women participating in the world. I am sure that they have lonely hours, melt down times,why me times, but they don't surrender to those feelings. If and when I am in their place, I want to be just like them.

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?
