It is the end of a very full day.

I am grateful for doctors, for friendships, for Thai food for lunch, for my housemate, for Mishka the cat and for the friend who came in from Philadelphia to make sure I healed well after the surgery. I learned a lot about my fear of losing competence and independence---insisted, stupidly, on doing whtever I could.

I can feel and see my eye improving.

I am listening to the wind, dozing unintentionally, greeting the visitor-for-the-conference, petting the cat...

I wish us all a good shabbos.
