A spark of light
In the grey of the day
Seeking tiny delights
Often hidden away.
"Inglenook" used by Michael Harris in his book "The End of Absence."
"Vehemently" used by Grandgirl in a conversation - I know, impressive, yeah?
We agreed to 'master the art of doing nothing' beautifully at the beach together. Grandgirl is sauntering away in the distance while I break briefly from nothing and snap the picture.
In the mail: A tiny care package from my sister in Ireland: handmade soap, Irish chocolate and a book festival brochure.
A request from a young woman to meet her for coffee and chat as she really admires how contented (!!) I am. We did. And she sent me a text afterwards:
Just feeling overjoyed ever since our meeting I’m so grateful to you for making my night!She made my night too. Some young uns really want to hear our life-stories and how we surmounted challenges and tragedy and know that contentment often comes at a huge price.
My doctor thanks ME for everything. Yesterday it was for the copy of my daily BP readings which, he said, are far more relevant than the readings in his clinic due to white coat syndrome. He also thanked me for being on time always. And asks me stuff about our Senior Women Activist Group. I look forward to our interactions and I am delighted I lucked out in getting him when my old doctor moved to another province.
