One community elder died recently.
Another accomplished elder, disabled for a while, is now in rehab after breaking her hip in a fall. They want her to leave because they feel she is not improving enough.
A woman about my age is recovering well at home after a hysterectomy that saved her life.
Another friend is recovering at home after surgery.
I have recently made over two gallons of kosher chicken soup---because what else do you bring when someone is recuperating? Only don't forget the fresh dill, like I did. (It waits in the fridge for the next batch of soup.)
All these dear folks heading with dignity---and G-d-willing slowly---towards the exit. It reminds me that I am not that far behind, and if I want to accomplish anything more in my life, it behooves me to focus.
Focusing is not what my system does easily these days. Can I trust that there are enough competent people taking care of the political front that I can let go for a bit and return to my own stuff, the work that only I can do?
Below: a different version of a song I have sent before. Feels just right for tonight.
Nope. I can't seem to transfer it tonight. Go to youtube and find John Bucchino's song
