ON THE BACK BURNER

Jan. 14

A couple of times a week, I walk Dixie down the hill(easy) to the lagoon, and then on a path. Today was sorta cool because as we were walking, a man kid ran by and called out” hi Yoni”. That’s my grandma name.It was my grandson . It made me feel as if I were in a small village. I actually knew someone . Then walking backup the hill( hard) , I saw a neighbor walking her dog. Now I recognize two people. I almost feel as if I am a native. Then to culminate this feeling of belonging, I looked up as Dixie sniffed a grassy spot and I saw an eagle fly right over my head. That is when I wished that I was with someone so that I could share that special sighting. And being with someone was a thought that I had had just moments before when I was walking next to the lagoon. Out of nowhere, the thought that Bob would have loved to be walking around this open space, the lagoon, having a grandkid call out as he ran by, just

popped into my head. There are periods of time when I don’t think of Bob and then just something makes me think of him and  how he would have just enjoy what ever was going on. All good.

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?
