And now…

Simon left this morning on an early ferry – driving back home with Shanara. A long drive – in the winter. I still have travel angels watching out for him.

I miss him. But mostly, I feel happy and blessed to have had time with him, to have had time to walk (see photo) and talk and share meals – and then talk – and laugh. No one has ever been able to make me laugh the way he does.

Of course, that’s because he is certifiably mad.

And so I did laundry and shopped for groceries and walked with Abby and watched a very funny movie.

And making plans for the spring.

And hiking tomorrow.

I promise myself to savour every moment of my life, to find joy in it – to find and spread love. Every day and every moment is precious.

And I get to choose my experience of every day.

I choose love and joy.

And I’m pretty sure I’ll have lapses – but dammitall – I know how to pull myself back to love and joy. I will do my best.
