ON THE BACK BURNER

Oct. 21

I am always surprised that I actually am very comfortable and peaceful being in this semi quarantined environment.The days go by quickly. I treat myself to Amazon deliveries. So far, I have accumulated a crepe maker,books, bras,batteries for my hearing aids,ink for the printer,flour ,yeast, flannel lined jeans and a puffer jacket,and things too numerous to remember. Amazon loves me. I order my food on line. Safeway loves me. I am spending these last 7 months being loved. One of these days, I will have to come out of my cocoon. My daughter in law wondered why I was uncomfortable ordering in food and here I was getting ready to fly across the country with a plane full of strangers. I don’t know the answer. Maybe because the only way that I can get home is to take this leap and fly whereas, eating food from carry out , is something I don’t need . Whatever way I try to rationalize leaving this cozy environment ,really makes no practical sense. It’s just that I really need to be home , even if I know, I won’t have face to face contact with my friends, even though I will still be living pretty much sheltered, even though a lot of things... my home is calling me.

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?
