Diversion & Distraction
A view of St. John's, capital city of Newfoundland & Labrador, taken a few days ago by moi.
A friend of over 40 years standing came and visited me for 6 days. Which accounts for my lack of attention to your blogs and to my own.
She couldn't have timed it better as it was her first visit here and I pulled out all the touristy stuff within easy reach. The weather was kind to us and the pace was leisurely. Art galleries, fossil sites (oldest fossils in the world), Signal Hill (see view up above)and Cape Spear - the most eastern point in North America, to name a few. And oh yes Thanksgiving dinner chez moi thrown in there too. We had long conversations into the small hours catching up on all the doings that phone-calling and emailing don't quite cover.
Now that she's gone I am taking the day off to regroup. My new grief counsellor phoned me and we had a lovely chat, he right away went into a recent grief process of his own which resulted also in physical health issues and he won me over. So my first F2F session is next Wednesday.
I can't thank everyone out there enough for all the support, both private and on comments, that has been offered so lovingly and with such compassion.
My sometimes difficult and challenging passages through life are rendered easier because of you, my web gang.
You are truly the family of my heart.
