i am sitting here in my chair - that an acquaintance in TO had given me from his collection,

I think he had gotten it from a garage sale -
but it's a pretty nice whicker chair -

and I am quite cozy in it.

I see some friends on the site right now,
I am also thinking of friends who I am concerned for - well put succinctly wanting so badly to be happy - I suppose though

it is the old adage again that I am reminded of,

-take care of oneself and then the rest falls into place?

I also think though this does not mean - do NOT care -

part of our lives thankfully is the love - the good kind we can have in knowing a nice friend

a partner - ourselves and appreciating them and ourselves.

maybe in what we can do - and even if we can't do certain things -

we are still valuable - very much so.
each of us.

what am i feeling? where am I going with this writing?

i am lucky to be friends you guys - all of you -

so lucky to know you.

it's a blessing.

I am tired, but I am healing this morning.

It's needed.

peace.


Mark
