Eight days ago we were getting out of the car for a quick lunch in Phoenix before our flight home, following a relatively short but very interesting vacation far out in the desert in southeastern Arizona.
The lunch never happened. Long story short, we are still in Phoenix – I’m at an airbnb and my best friend, my life partner, my traveling mate and – well, the description could continue all night – but the fact is, he’s in the neuro ICU at a local hospital following a serious stroke.
I am coping with a life changing event far from home. I miss WordPress and the connection and pleasure it gives me. I don’t know what the future holds. We never do but it is muddier than usual.
I wish I had wonderful photos of the desert to show you but they are still on the card because we didn’t bring a computer – it was a pretty unplugged vacation. It’s been just me and my smart phone for twelve days – thank god for smart phones!
I felt I should check in with you all. I have not visited any blogs in almost two weeks. Priorities.
But I will get back to it, and I will do my best to try to accept and work with what comes my way, in each moment. Please, no pity. Maybe a little advice or support or kindness. We all know the world needs more kindness!
Enough. Time to get back to the hospital and see what’s up.
