Today is a great day, not only of healing and reconciliation, but also coming together. Winthrop Rockefeller
Yesterday was an absolutely wonderful day. My daughter showed up extra early to help me work on the house so after B-fast we got right to it. We spent the day listening to music and laughing and talking. She did great with the scraping and caulking while I cut in the trim around the picture window and facia. After we went grocery shopping and she stayed for dinner. Here are the results of our labor….
I am happy and can’t wait for the whole thing to be done, and then it’s on to the interior. With that I leave you with the Beatles…
A little while, and my longing shall gather dust and foam for another body.
A little while, a moment of rest upon the wind, and another woman shall bear me.
Farewell to you and the youth I have spent with you.
It was but yesterday we met in a dream.
You have sung to me in my aloneness, and I of your longings have built a tower in the sky.
But now our sleep has fled and our dream is over, and it is no longer dawn.
The noontide is upon us and our half waking has turned to fuller day, and we must part.
If in the twilight of memory we should meet once more, we shall speak again together and you shall sing to me a deeper song.
And if our hands should meet in another dream, we shall build another tower in the sky.

I finished making the poster for Gracie’s Funeral and Celebration of her life. It is for everyone who wants to to sign and then I am going to have it framed to give to Dan, her husband. The poem at the right hand corner is posted above. I was asked to put topgether two songs for the funeral for her by me so I decided on “Landslide” and “Nights in White Satin”. I am going to miss her so very much….
With that I leave you with my versions of Landslide and NIghts in White Satin….
