Grateful for my 2 kids, 2 granddaughters, 2 brothers and their wives and step-families, granddog, friends, and Brother David
Maybe I’d stress out less when writing papers – that would be wonderful.
Mission and opportunities for having fun in areas outside my ‘mission.’
And for connecting with people – family, friends and others.

And now there’s still a little craziness about being able to emigrate to another planet! I think my memories are a little before the Cuban Missile Crisis, which is why ‘duck and cover’ didn’t exactly ring a bell. My thesis adviser’s house had a bomb shelter in the back yard where his wife worked on her PhD thesis. My thesis adviser flooded it once, forgetting to turn off the hose after he watered.
‘Duck and cover’ – is that when we learned to hide under our desks? And they figured out how many of us could fit in the gym locker room? I once asked my granddaughter whether she thought it was more scary to practice lockdowns or practice for a nuclear attack. Lockdowns are maybe worse, because shootings actually happen.
Your life would be even more filled with awe – wow, SK, what a thought. Thank you!
Thank you, Mike S! They’ve been on my calendar for a while, but I’ve never chosen to attend one. Now I will. But I did enjoy my weekly Art from Scrap class yesterday afternoon – and then a great talk by Ibram Kendi.
I have a gratefulness gathering on my calendar for May 12. And every month at least thru July.
Me too! Actually, I think ‘good’ was the word for me. Dreadfully obedient, to the point of not even having thoughts of my own about many things. My mother reminded me about being raised to be good during a family conflict with her when I had kids of my own.
Oh, good, Holly in Ohio. I wonder when and where I’ll find my other pair of reading glasses…
“a little glum, lol.” Thank you, Holly in Ohio, for that fun juxtaposition.
Thank you, Mike S
“You do not have to be good.
Isn’t that wonderful!?
Well, Dusty Su – at least it’s a humorous word for your current ‘condition.’ Warm wishes to you –
‘Discombobulated’ – I haven’t heard that fun word in a long time – thanks, Dusty Su – it sounds like a fairly benign word for where you are in this pandemic.
What do we promise to do, Patjos, if we sign up?
Go, Drew! I’m glad you enjoyed it. 🙃
Thanks, Rita, for reminding me of the Dalai Lama and his smile 😉
You’re facing more than I am, Holly in Ohio – no need to apologize [to me] 😊
What fun, Holly in Ohio – I admire your little trash. At least I have few paper trash bags. I collected my neighbor’s great volumes of mail for 4 months while she was recovering from covid at her son’s house, and my only problem was that I didn’t have big grocery bags to collect it in. Finally I started using new plastic Costco waste-basket bags and, even later, asking her son for some used grocery bags. She came back home yesterday.
I like that, Howie – the duality of being both individuals and also part of all life. Maybe I’ll remember being part of all life, as I fuss around as an individual
And, Michelle, we are all from one origin of life, here on Earth
