And I am choosing to remain silent lest my words undermine me. I have no idea who reads here, so until certain things are settled, I'm probably going to be posting only pictures for a while. Suffice it to say, the universe is mysterious and sometimes an exacting taskmaster but I am not wandering on the plain alone. Case in point: These two men (shown 21 years ago and now), and also my daughter (who has college homecoming this weekend). They have been unstinting in their support. I particularly enjoyed clearing out my office last Sunday with my son, his capable rooted self, helping me run through the piles and quickly decide what to toss and what to keep, and leavening the whole enterprise with humor. My husband waited in the car in a no parking zone in front of the building, so that all we had to do was exit the front doors with bags in hand, deposit them in the trunk and go home. Easy peasy.
