A Break in Precipitation

Tomorrow we will spend most of the day at home. Today we left about 9 am, and didn’t return until after 5 pm.Our first stop was on the UW campus for a memorial service. A friend’s wife, who died unexpectedly before Christmas. We did not know her well, but wanted to support her husband, whom we do know well. Trying to put understand what her husband is going through is almost impossible to concieve. Tears and joy at the memories shared, of the lives she enriched. Carl and I have each tried to imagine life without the other. Not good for either one. We each see major deficits that are filled by the other.At the conclusion we didn’t really want to go home, so we set off to walk and talk instead. Several miles later we were on top of Capitol Hill. And we did climb the hill. A little urban mountaineering. No long incline, this was a long hill.We lunched at the Rhine Haus. It hit the spot after our trek, and allowed us to pass some time waiting for the second event of the day.

The Seattle Women’s Chorus concert, including a set by the acappella group, Acappella Joy. The focus of the concert was voting rights, and human rights. I find myself despairing of the current goings on in our country on so many fronts. But we just keep moving forward as best we can, putting one foot in front of the other.7.5 miles for the day, according to my tracker. And it didn’t rain on us until the very end, and that was barely noticeable. This is after a week of rain. Not showers or drizzle or mist, RAIN. And wind for the last few days. We consider this a major win. And, yes, it is raining again.And now for what we are thankful.

Should be 4 pictures

    I also am despairing about what I see in this country and in people’s attitudes. 😦 I went walking and running without a single drop of rain on me. It’s impossible to imagine life without one’s partner; I’m moving forward the best I can with the help of family and friends. I also have a very nice guy in my life. I never thought that would happen but I’m happy about it and him.
