ON THE BACK BURNER

April 23

I fead about a man who during his remote working at home,had a serious heart attack As he recovered, he had time to asses his life.He previously spent 12 hour days working remotely, answering emails, zoom meetings, no interaction with his work or social peers because  of Covid restrictions. These were contributing stress factors for him. He ended this self reflection by asking himself" who am I".That made me ask myself the same question. Just "who am I".I was a daughter.I was a sister. I was a wife. I had a profession. I was a volunteer. "So who am I." Did I change with the question? Some of the answers I wish hadn't changed. I am no longer a daughter. After 65 years, I am no longer a wife.I am  ow listed as widow on some forms. I am retired, so I have no profession. So when I give thought to "who am I", I am a different me.After reflecting on this weighty subject, I had to

 laugh , because the only constant in this whole thought process is that during all of this, I have always had a dog. Think about that.

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.
