The Color Purple

And just like that it begins again, the startling, eternal rebirth of that which had appeared to be dead. Jesus ain't got nothing on wisteria. 

I really don't know what else to say this evening. It's been a fine day and I've got bags lining one wall of the kitchen filled with things to take with me to Lis's house. Flours of different types, raisins, butter-flavored Crisco, Caraway seeds, yeast, vodka, olives, limes, vermouth, potatoes. Is that redundant? In the refrigerator in the garage I have fourteen pounds of corned beef. And my suitcase is laid out on my bed. It's still empty but it's ready to receive whatever I need and want to pack in it. 


Mr. Moon is on his way right now to take a friend of ours to the ER. I am going to give no details because this is a most private person. But this friend has been a friend of mine for ever forty years and he is someone I would trust my life with and his situation is quite serious.
And that. 
And this. 
It puts everything into perspective, doesn't it?

I really do find myself wordless right now. 
I'll check in tomorrow. 

Love...Ms. Moon

  6. I'm sorry to hear this and hope your friend is okay. Sending you all kinds of love.

  7. Let me get this right - you're putting baking goods in a suitcase?

    P.S. I hope your private friend lives to fight another day.

  8. It does put everything in perspective. Sending hugs.

  9. May your friend recover, bolstered by friends and family who love him.

  10. we all go in the end. some of us sooner than others. hopefully it's not your friend's time.

  11. I'm so glad your friend got to the hospital and (per your subsequent post) is getting the care he needs.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
