A Normal Day


A Normal Day

I spent yesterday on the bus with a friend going nowhere. Stopping for lunch, stopping again for coffee. Taking a different route home just for fun.

The joy of yesterday for me was just hanging out, kidding, and fooling around with a friend for the whole day. The serious talk was cloaked in humor and the crazy things were spontaneous. Life is starting to come back to normal for me even if it is happening slowly like in E.E.Cummings', "Spring is like a perhaps thing."

I am a widower. And now the simple joy of life is returning!

I am glad that you are beginning to feel the joy of life again. You deserve it.
