I hope all is well.

Isn't Michelle Obama the most amazing First Lady ever? What an inspiration for those girls in particular and to all who hear what she had to say. That footage should be shown in all secondary schools.

So glad you all got through a difficult day - and that you found good things in the wider world, too

Hope the recovery continues apace


So glad your daughter is recovering well after a stressful time for you both.

Infectious - now I've got a lump in my throat. Sounds like you had one of those days when emotions are heightened all round - hope y'all are well.

What a wonderful end to a emotional day for you. I am glad you were with friends, dogs, good food and warm hearts and thoughts

I'm so glad to hear your daughter came through her surgery okay and is now recovering. I hope she heals well.

It's so good to see parenting done well, isn't it? Reassuring, in this world of disintegrating family values, too.

Oh my goodness - I'm teary after watching that! We women must be strong for each other. I am so glad your daughter came through her surgery well, and that you could remain strong.What a relief for you. Mothers and daughters, our own and other people's - we keep them in our thoughts,and bless Michelle Obama, she is an inspiration.

Thank God she is alright! There is nothing scarier than this. My heart is with you.

Hope your daughter gets well very soon.

Your comment on JFK stikes a similar accord for me. Despite all of the stories subsequent to his death, I still consider him an inspiration and hope that the legacy will be continued by President Obama.

Missing your posts and hoping everything is going well in the Recouperation Department. Dawn.

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.

    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.

    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.

    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?

    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
