happy to be here

-Dancing in my class until my legs ached, and then dancing some more.

-Yesterday was one year from a very scary experience I had in Jamaica, where I had an allergic reaction that was very serious. My friend Karen decided then that it was essential that we celebrate my being alive with a Red Stripe. After chatting over our beers for a while, she gave me a big hug and said, "I'm glad you're alive." I am too.

-Starting the day with the melodic and familiar sounds of my Out of Africa record and a cup of Irish tea....bringing together two places I love.

(a fourth today)

-Getting an email that a dear friend who is enduring cancer is feeling stronger, and hungry.
