Of course that may be due to the fact that I was brought up to clean my plate and not spend too much time wallowing around in sorrow- after all, there’s work to be done! What work? I’m not getting much done.
Still, I’m feeling better now.
Of course that might be due to the fact that one of my dear blog neighbors sent me two fine bottles of
Toasted Head Chardonnay to make up for that crock of an airline that ran out when I needed it most.
Wine- now that’s my idea of a good condolence. And a great friend. I think it would go nicely with some Indian curry so I’ll figure out how to get some of that over here, say Monday or Tuesday evening next week, after I’ve been up to Lost Loon Lodge for a few days. Seriously now, there are certain times when you should exploit all offers of kindness and get all the pleasure you can from them. I’m going for it. We’ve got some nice flowers around here, too. And cards and letters. And about 300 of the nicest comments and e-mails and web posts from people who care about me and my family.
So, I’m feeling much better now, thank you.
Curiously, another thing that helped was this. I was over at Round Rock Journal and found a link to a site that makes you your own personal word cloud. You just type in your blog URL and viola! It’s the essence of you! Or it’s the essence of what you put out there for the world to see. It’s nice if there’s a relationship. I notice mine doesn’t have sobbing, wailing, gnashing of teeth or snot trails on it so apparently I haven’t dwelled on this aspect of my life too much. Of course, you have probably been all over this site already while I was busy moping around airports and hospitals, but I liked it. My word cloud made me feel better. What does yours say about you?
