ON THE BACK BURNER

Aug. 27

My Word Weavers writing group is taking a hiatus . One of our major team players has a broken limb and we want to wait for all of us to be in good health before we start back. Our assignment would have been to think of five things that we will do after this craziness of Covid -19 is gone and we can get on with what we hope is normal. Here are my first thoughts. I may change them later, but right now, this is it. I want a hug. It has been six months since anyone hugged  me. That  would have been when I last saw a daughter in Israel. Little did we know that would be my last hug. And I know who I want to give me that hug. There is a special friend at my congregation that gives hugs like they mean something. She and I are about the same height and her hugs fits me just right. Then I want to be able to sharing with my family of choice. I don’t know what they are doing in Venice, but my life here in Port Townsend, although super wonderful because I am with family, it is still quite limited. Then I need to get back to my congregation. This special congregation is like no others, anywhere. You walk into our sanctuary and you are embraced forever. Number four  is that I want to eat in a restaurant. I haven’t done that yet. My son did bring me fish and chips for lunch one day,  but I want to go to a restaurant,sit at a table ,look at a menu and order. Number five... take a trip ,if I want to.How simple are these things that I want to do? How out of reach right now.

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.
