I lost another dear friend this week---my friend, Marie, who was a bright light in my life. I will miss her so. At her passing, it occurs to me I have more friends on the “other side” than I have here. I soldier on. It’s as if the world is a great theater and my life a stage. Players enter stage left, and play their designated role in the drama of my life, then exit stage right, leaving memories and vestiges of themselves that make me who I am. Go well, Marie, and tell the others I said hello. I’ll be along one of these days. For now, there are new faces on the stage, new lessons to be learned. In the meantime, life is good and I continue to practice for my curtain call.
