at the lake

October 8, 2010

we left the city
drove up north
jumped the fence
and swam in the cold, cold lake

my toes went numb
my lips turned blue
you kissed them pink again
(my lips, not my toes)
and everything was perfect

i am going back there today
(in my head)

    Beautiful, as always. And that includes having a place to go back to (in your head).

    You have no idea who I am so what difference does it make whether or not you know, let alone care, how desperately I’ve missed you for seven or eight months. First shocker, I’m 79 years of age and get that image out of your head, the one that pops up when one hears numbers that are age related. I promise to be brief in explaining how I ‘lost you’. Married a US Air Force officer in 1954, moved many times, built a home in Clear Lake City, TX (home of Nasa) in 1970, decided to retire there, raised two girls and in December 1990 my husband died. In 1993 I moved, with a young man (‘cougar’ had not yet become a lable) to the mountains of Northeast Georgia. Bought a home, blissfully private, indescribably beautiful with a breathtaking mountain view. We were both content with each other’s company, enjoyed solitude and had no problem saying ‘no’ to party invitations, dinners out, that sort of thing. In February 2008 he suffered a major stroke (55 years of age), was moved to a nursing home after a month’s hospitalization, and that involved a 75 mile round trip for me from the mountains to Gainesville, GA. Originally from Lake Jackson, TX he was returned to that area a year ago by his sister and brother and placed in a nursing home close by. Being alone and remote from close neighbors in my home caused no anguish whatever for me; I loved my way of life. But ‘the girls’ in Texas decided I should be closer to them. My computer ‘crashed’ when the time came to make a move and I lost every damned thing including your website. When the time came to reestablish my ‘favorites’ I couldn’t, for the life of me, recall the title of your site. Took some doin’ but I won! I am so very happy for you and ‘your guy’! I feel blessed to share your thoughts and dreams….thanks for being there and trust me, I’ll not lose you again. Best thoughts and wishes for you. Blessings with love, Carol
