Recuperating. . .

"There are times when we stop,
                               we sit still.
We listen and breezes from a whole other world
                               begin to whisper."
                                                           ~ James Carroll

Dear Ones,
I can't find adequate words to express
how terribly much I've missed
~ hearing from each one of you
~participating in your weekly parties
~seeing all your photos of Autumn's approach
but I am currently recuperating
from an unforeseen sudden gald bladder surgery.

So~o~o. . .
for the moment I have had to stop,
                                          to sit still.
Currently I'm listening to my aging body
and focusing on its immediate needs for care.
Refreshing Autumnal breezes from
Bennett Spring State Park at Lebanon, Missouri
begin to whisper that it is time ~ 
                                            for our Annual return.

Amidst all these unforeseen circumstances,
arriving home from my hospital stay,
I learned we had been "h a c k e d"
and the Mother board f r i e d!!!

Presently I'm looking towards the future of
~ returning and renewed health
~ inspired and clear focus
~and the purchase of a new computer
allowing me, once again, to join all of you
in The Land of Blog in October.

Thank you for your patience and
understanding in these times of trial.

                                With a grateful heart,

Until next time. . .
