want

Nothing is so hard for those who abound in riches as to conceive how others can be in want.

Jonathan Swift


Today I discovered that the a/c in my car blows hot air. The sheets on my bed have holes in them.

I have more sheets. I can put the top down.

May your wants be wants and not needs.

Isn't it wonderful to have used something so long it has holes in it? I have a couple of towels I use to mop up spills. They're thin and frayed around the edges. They were a wedding present from a loved one so many years ago I don't count anymore. Because they were so beautiful then, even in age, I see them more as they were and love every opportunity I have to use them again.

Thank you for the good wishes. May they be returned to you in threes.

What a hell of a summer you're having! Catching up on your last week has left me wondering what Beloved is trying to show you. I love how positive you sound, how not-defeated by any of it. It was so great to read about your morning view of your cats. You know I share those sentiments with you.

So glad HB continues to heal well, and had to laugh at Miho's annoyance.

Misi is sweet! My 19 year olds (all three of them) will from time to time do that screeching thing. I've definitely noticed an increase in their volume in direct proportion to the decrease in their hearing.

Much love to you.
