A Dream Remembered

“Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow.

Going out reminded me of everything I was missing: the driver, the other side of my brain to make the final decision for every quandary, and my entertainment, as nightly there were hours of stories so Archie could talk through the events of the day. Heartfelt Creations, as you know, has walked closely beside me. They showed up at my door many times with food, as I was not up to cooking, nor did I want to leave the house to get groceries.
