Who keeps me company at night when I am up with my husband quietly sleeping nearby, this author's funny, sad humor. She sounds so much how I feel if I only had her way with words. So she keeps me company when the reality of what is going on disturbs me.
We try to keep it private. We put signs all around and hope people read them. The pool is just for us, small, a bit old, but I love lying on my back and looking at the sky and watching the trees against it. I am especially happy when Bernie is swimming nearby. Just a simple pleasure on a summer day. I remember with happiness the raucous sound of family in the pool. What joy.
