One dream, big plans

The sun rose at 7:44 this morning. The radio began talking to me at 6:59. I hate getting up in the dark, so I didn't. The radio told me it was 22 degrees out and wasn't likely to get warmer. I burrowed deeper into the covers and went back to sleep. The radio stopped talking to me at 7:59. I had a vivid dream about Marcia, a long-time friend who finally pushed the boundaries of friendship too far, and whom I haven't seen for seven or eight years. In that time, I moved to Pittsburgh and her studio in Chicago was emptied and sold. I don't know what happened to her; sometimes it makes me very sad. It's hard to lose a friend, even when the friendship had become onerous.

On a happier note: I am planning my next trip to Japan. I will leave Pittsburgh on March 22 and return on May 7. Six weeks ought to be long enough to satisfy my Japanese garden obsession, I hope.

  1. Oh wonderful. Back to Japan and it’s gardens. Thanks to you, I’ve recommended to several friends that they see these gardens. If it was not for you, I wouldn’t know a thing about these wonderful places. Will there be any snow remaining in March? Looking forward to this!!!!!
    Yes, over the years I have not happily parted with two long time friends. One dumpt me saying I was toxic. Sometimes we just grow apart. Another married an alcoholic. I miss that last friend but not her new husband.
    Hugs to you and yours.
