ON THE BACK BURNER

Oct. 1

I just decided that I am my body, but not me. I am a city girl. Even living in Evanston, it was a city, even though it was considered suburban. After we sold our house, we did move to the” city”. We loved it. We lived in a high rise for 7 years and that was the best. A small grocery with a good, cheap wine selection, right in the building. A mail room , right in the building. Valet parking, right in the building. Loved it, loved it. Best of all.. a door man, who could walk your dog,if you had to be out. Loved it. 38 th floor,nothing to obstruct your view of Lake Michigan. What’s not to love. Now, here I am, in a trailer ,painting flowers on the exterior, in a town of less than 9000 people,mowing grass and planing a veggie garden for next spring. It’s my body, but someone else is in it.Love it, love it.

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?
